A couple of years ago, we were in love and horrified by Sam Barnett’s stop-motion short “Operator.” And now we are excited, and slightly apprehensive, that Barnett’s launched a Kickstarter for a whole season of these body horror nightmares.

A full season of Operator would be 15 episodes long and have an actual arc. As of right now, with ten days left, Barnett has a bit over six thousand left of his $11 thousand goal. The rewards are suitably weird, with higher tiers getting posable hand puppet statues and “Leather and Copper Hand Made Decorative Trevor Masks.”


The original “Operator” was creepy as hell, so if that floats your boat, there’s no reason not to head over to the Kickstarter and see if you want more.
