The Oscar-nominated, stop-motion film Head over Heels  by Tim Reckart is now online.

Head over Heels is Reckart's graduation thesis for the National Film and Television School, UK.

After many years of marriage, Walter and Madge have grown apart: he lives on the floor and she lives on the ceiling.

When Walter tries to reignite their old romance, their equilibrium comes crashing down, and the couple that can’t agree which way is up must find a way put their marriage back together.

Tim Reckart's festival favorite film shines with inventiveness in the settings department. His way of telling a story of alienation only makes physical and painstakingly visual what the characters themselves cannot dare to express in words.

Tim Reckart has won the Annie award for best student film, and is a contender at the 2013 Academy Awards.
