Squirrel, a Symphony

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A puppet animation based on 'King Kong' and silent horror films of the 1930's such as 'Nosferatu'. In the depths of a forest a squirrel is attacked by evil knitted people, so he seeks them out to destroy their woolen brains in revenge...

This is a film animated by my sister (www.lizzlizz.com) a couple of years ago, we decided to convert it into Flash and submit it here. Hope you like it.

Woah, this was better than expected. Great work on the stopmotion, or what looks like stopmotion. And it's not jus t random motions, there's actually a rather macabre story to go with it. It's graphical and surprisingly well-done. The occasional glimpses into a more colored world are nice details too. Keep it going!


All good

It all worked out well, you made this animation very well.


I love your horrific style. I've never seen something like this on NG but you've gotta keep making this stuff. It's beautiful in a creepy way, which I love. Keep up the work, its terrific!

I'm afraid this will probably be a one off (until i'm rich enough to employ animators to animate my ideas for me) because it is a veeery slow and boring process to be stuck in a room with a homemade taxidermy squirrel, a camera and some paper mache trees moving it frame by frame and trying not to move the background.

Thanks :o) Lizz

good one

that was a very interesting and unique animation. this one had a very original idea to it, nice graphics, cool audio and it was fun to watch. a definite nice change from some of the usual stuff you see here on NG.

ChromeShark responds:

Cool, its nice to know i've put something different on NG :o) Lizz


Haha, this is so great! I loved the ending, too! I actually liked the music, I thought it fit perfectly. Great job on the stop motion, too; I've always wanted to try it, but it just seems like way too much work... :p

ChromeShark responds:

Thanks, i'm glad you liked the ending. At first it was going to end just with the squirrel eating his acorns on the bed of wool but it didn't seem a creepy enough ending...no one can defeat those evil knitted creatures.....! :o) Lizz
