Jerk Chicken is an animated comedic short that explores the work day of a Jamaican jerk chicken chef named Ron. However, Ron’s passion for his craft is short lived as the frustrations of the chicken eventually emerge.
The animation vividly captures all the emotions of the characters, without using a single word.
Delivering what would normally be complex due to the absence of speech, animator Samuel Stewart accomplishes perfect comedic timing.
