CLUNK Shorts

Gone Fishin’


The first in the development of CLUNK Shorts: Four 15 minute pieces based on quotes and stories by famous philosophers. Using these quotes as a jumping-off point for our research, we delve deeper into their meaning to create simple, beautiful, stories that explore moments and connections of our shared human experience. Gone Fishin’ looks at the meaning of a quote by Henry David Thoreau: “Some men fish all their lives without knowing that it’s not really the fish they are after”. It’s the tale of Percival Sweetwater, a kindhearted curmudgeon and a mischievous fish whose stories collide in an epic adventure on the open sea.
