Shadow puppet assignment for my Animation course at Columbia College Chicago.
To get practice with timing, we were tasked with creating a ten second stop-motion animation with a shadow puppet. I opted to craft my own puppet rather than using the available templates, giving it more absurd proportions and a heart for a head, with an apparatus that allows it to split in two.
While it's only a brief practice project, I wanted to tell a quick, cute story about mending yourself when your affections for others fall flat.
