Jack Stauber’s OPAL is a new animated special by creator Jack Stauber (SHOP: A Pop Opera, Now and Then). Using a unique blend of stop-motion, 2D animation and musical elements, Jack Stauber’s OPAL tells the story of a curious girl who investigates the cries she hears coming from a forbidden house across the street. The quarter-hour special is executive produced by Dave Hughes (Off The Air, Adult Swim Smalls), Matt Harrigan and Keith Crofford, and produced by Williams Street Productions.
