A wonderful seamstress helped make little tiny clothes. We created little shoes, furniture, food, lunch bags, a working Christmas tree, a magazine and even a calendar that changed as time passed.
Dialogue was recorded in our sound booth and the replacement faces were created for the different phonemes. Animators worked daily to get the most out of the puppets using Dragonframe software. Post-production included color grading, compositing, seam removal for the faces, music and sound effects.

It was an incredibly long process to create our first 4 minute stop-motion animation. While somewhat crude by our current standards was a true labor of love. By the time we finished we were hooked on stopmo!
