A young boy is dropped off at an elderly woman's home for the day. A lone man, who rents a room, adds to the unsettling atmosphere. The savage slaughter of a chicken makes this daycare a harsh and confusing world for the boy, who learns caring can be shown in unexpected ways.
Jason's prior training as a painter brings an expressive, organic quality to his film The Renter. He recently received his MFA from CalArts in Experimental Animation. There he further developed this story, which is inspired by events from his childhood. While Jason continues to develop his own projects, he collaborates with his brother, Michael, the second half of Carpenter Bros Animation.
