Papa Cloudy’s Restaurant
Directed by Akiko McQuerrey
When an octopus escapes the chopping block to sing a heartfelt song about overfishing, Papa Cloudy decides to change the menu at his fancy seaside restaurant.
Akiko McQuerrey started the PAPA CLOUDY animation series as a way to feel better about the world and she hopes that people watching her films will share this feeling, and have warmer hearts. She currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She is originally from Hayama, a little seaside town in Japan.
