Juniper Tree > student film

This short film was created by Jarid Waniger and Tyler Nelson last semester in Digital Studio class. Chelsey Luther created the related graphics. The students were asked to create a digital narrative inspired by a fairy tale or myth. In fairy tale studies, The Juniper Tree can be one of the more gruesome tale types, following the pattern: "my mother slew me, my father ate me" or the more common pattern of having the dead child be the boy. see Story Synopsis.
