Made in his mother’s spare room for the equiv­a­lent of $81 U.S., the stop-motion ani­mated film Ani­mal Beat­box won actor Damon Gar­neau the top prize Sat­ur­day at the world’s largest short film festival.

The film cost $80 — most of that was spent on cel­lo­phane for the [ani­mal] cos­tume,” Gar­neau said after receiv­ing the prize at Australia’s Tropfest. “It made me real­ize that fol­low­ing my heart is reward­ing, and I encour­age every­one else to do the same.”

I’m quite new to stop ani­ma­tion, but I find it a quick and ver­sa­tile way to express any idea that may be lurk­ing in my head.”

The humor­ous movie fea­tures funny lyrics and the sounds of wild animals.

For his efforts, Gar­neau won $5,000 in prize cash, a dig­i­tal cam­era and a return trip to Los Ange­les to see film executives.
