Yard Work is Hard Work


Program Overview

Jodie Mack and The Studio@620 are excited to invite you to a special premiere of the recently completed film Yard Work Is Hard Work.

Yard Work is Hard Work is an experimental animation and mini-musical that wants to be a romantic comedy. Using various paper cut-outs-- from glamour magazines to junk mail--the piece follows a pair of newlyweds as they learn the perils of home-ownership and life in general. Eight songs featuring stop-motion animation.
