Created for: ARTE 354 Time-based media / Cutout Stop Motion Animation 1:08 minsĀ 


My art practice focuses mainly on storytelling and includes creating paper and wood puppets because of their inherent ability to evoke narratives with viewers. With this project, I wanted to adapt my puppets to animation. The paper cutout stop motion animation technique I used was inspired by the work of filmmaker and director Terry Gilliam and by shadow puppetry. I wanted to use animation to tell a simple and humorous story, to make the piece accessible to students and various audiences.
