elves and the shoemaker

For this project I discovered the elves and the shoe maker tell when a girl commented on a photo project I did by saying it reminded her of the story of the elves and the shoe maker. I looked up the story on-line and thought it was a pretty good idea. I had done a stop-motion film with a mannequin in my photo2 class and it gave me the idea of using three little mannequins to re-tell the story in a contemporary way. I tried to have a stable color pallete by using a lot of wooden items; the desk, the mannequins, the straw hats, etc., and by keeping the lighting consistant. In the end I had a ten image story of three little mannequins who do all sorts of homework during the night.
