A pigeon gets wrapped up in the world of noir when he enters a secret jazz club hidden within the city’s storm drain

Submitter Statement

Pigeonholed is a product of my love of jazz and my love of silly little birds. I wanted to inject that classic noir feeling into the teeny tiny world of birds! And stop motion!
