A faceless factory worker fuses nature and technology until he discovers a dark truth: the factory is powered by the life force of infants. He must face the great and gruesome machine regardless of personal sacrifice.
Produced with the support of a 2011 Helen Hill Animated Joy Award, and a production grant from the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture, and Heritage in 2012, Kreb premiered at the Atlantic Film Festival in September 2013, where it was the winner of a Special Recognition for Animation award.

Kreb went on to play a variety of festivals, including Outlier Film Festival, GIRAF, First Glance Film Festival LA, Halifax Independent Filmmakers Festival, Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival, Vancouver International Film Festival, London International Film Festival, and Houston World-fest, where it won the Platimum Remi Award for Best Animated Short.

Kreb also received the 2015 Screen Nova Scotia Award for Best Short Film.

Visually nerve racking, it really gives uncertainty if the faceless worker would make it or not. Everything in this film was "eerie" and very "dark".

The story was easy to follow and the emotions were told expertly well with the music, camera angles, and the "body language" through the stop motion.

Amazing work.

My first thought upon starting the film was it reminds me heavily of a Tool or Primus music video which I love. I'm a big fan of how grimy everything looks, especially the backgrounds of each scene. Each background has a real gritty look about it. It in a way reminds me of a Borg ship from Star Trek. It's a very organized mess. Overall I'm so grateful to see a stop-motion animation done so well in an age where stop-motion isn't as popular as it once was. Great work Tim!

This is simply great !
Everyone involved on this film's creation did an excellent work.

This is so cool. this could be used for a Tool music video
