We were hired to make this animation for C. Anthony Robinson's production of The Pillowman (by Martin McDonagh) which opened March 4th in Norfolk, VA. The play featured in this style projected above the stage as part of the story.

Such a horrid tale, it's brilliant! :) I like the pied piper story I always though there was something off with that guy..taking young boys and all, now we know he's crazy xD

That was surprising, for those who don't understand this is a darker variation of the pied piper he sparred the kid the fate of the other children for his kindness.

Super interesting but I have to ask, is there a morale to the story? My best guess is don't talk to strangers or offer them any form of kindness or they'll chop off my toes and feed them to rats.

Loved the art style! I would add more pictures and make sure they are in tune with the beats of the story, sometimes the art drags behind the words. I cant 5r because this wasn't fully animation, but rather a slideshow, but great job!

pretty good
