A Hairy Movie

Ballpoint Barber

Two years ago, Peter Simon directed a stop-motion video called “Trim,” which showed a bald man becoming hairy in 38 seconds. Now working with the same model named Tom Offer-Westort, his newest film includes someone holding a pen who touches Westort’s head and face to magically add hair. It is similar to the first movie, but this one is better executed and more interesting to watch.
