My interpretation of the story may be different from your intention, but I really enjoyed this! Stop motion has always seemed a bit eerie to me, so I feel that it was a good choice for the story being told. I also really liked the expressions of the main character.

If I may, this is what I interpreted from the story - a young woman/teenage girl coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. She struggles with her own identity and is actively put down by others. Without guidance, she retaliates, and although what she chooses to do may seem wrong (turning the boy into a wiggly worm), she follows through with good intentions and plants the worm with a flower at the base of a post (possibly the burning stake) to remember her loved one.

I hope you don't mind my adding that, but I really enjoyed this animation. Great job!



The camera was a bit shaky for the majority of the time, and sometimes the framerate variety was a bit off-putting. The story seems like something that's supposed to convey a message, but it's unclear and I'm not really sure what it's supposed to be. However, I can tell a lot of work went into this and I can respect that. Definitely not blam-worthy material.

Stock motion is a dying breed, but I still like it, I know it is a lot of hard work doing stock motion so you have my respect, good work
