Oakland, California-based animator David Lauer created “Goodbye Blue Camper” as a film thesis for The California College of the Arts. The stop-motion short features yeti hunting, human sacrifice and a fair bit of puppet-on-puppet violence. According to Lauer, the project began as way of paying tribute to an old puppet.
Originally called the Hungry Mountain, the whole film was dedicated as a funeral to my wire armature days and the character I had grown to love, known to me as Blue Camper.
