*edit* Thanks for the FRONT PAGE Tom & thanks to everyone for the DAILY 4TH!
Okay, I made this for June's Animation Club Screening in Melbourne to the theme of fairytales.
I figured that you can tell any old story and call it a fairytale, so I thought I'd test that theory out. I took some storyboard sheets out drinking with me one night, and took turns with friends drawing the next frame of the story. It came out hilarious, weird and senseless. When I woke up in the morning I looked it over, giggled and then over the next week I animated it. Just to keep things interesting, the majority of the linework was animated one night while drinking a few glasses of red, making sure it didn't lose it's drunken edge.
The funniest thing is that I think it really works as a piece for kids, it's really innocent in a weird sort of way. Just don't tell them that we were wasted when we came up with it... I may do this again some time, everyone involved seemed to get a real kick out of it.
