Thanks! My wife actually taught herself to needle-felt for this project.

Great puppets, great set, excellent animation!  Really nice work, very impressed!

Thanks! It was great to get back to some pure animation after a couple years of just doing the occasional stopmo effect for live action projects...

Way good! What a cool prize for a kid to see their story be brought to life like that.

Comment by Eric Sanchez on April 30, 2016 at 9:27am

how long did this take you, roughly?

Comment by Thomas Nicol on April 30, 2016 at 10:06am

If I recall correctly, animation took maybe 40-50 hrs spread over a week.  Set construction and puppet-building were spread out over a few months on and off, so I have no idea how long those really took.
