Shelter puppies learn lessons on how to behave from an older dog.
Written by Claire Hartman, grade 3
Directed by Thomas and Becky Nicol
A wonderful well animated story, the dogs were so cute and the whole story was touching, hope to see more animations like this :)
A nice, straightforward story, well told, with great dog puppets. Is that some kind of felting technique for the fur? Very appealing style!
Yeah! As soon as we read the script, we knew we wanted to do it with the same sort of needle-felted puppets we used for "The Moose Emergency" a couple years ago. Just have to lean into the chattering felt as a "stylistic choice", haha.
I thought the felting worked really well. Very touching story, nicely animated.
Great stuff! Very smartly executed :)
