The story of how my Dad beat a childhood bully using only his wits and a Twinkie.

This was made for my studio class at college. The assignment required us to make a roughly 2 minute film that portrayed any sort of narrative from nonfiction. Being the family man I am, I recorded my Dad for a story.

For this project, I experimented with different mediums. You'll notice the backgrounds that are sets I built and how I incorporated stop-motion in the mix as well. It was a fun challenge and I would love to develop this style a bit more when given proper time. The most fun part of all was getting to animate a part of my life that is so important to me.

I hope y'all can get a kick out of my old man! Thanks everyone.

Aaand what happened after that? XD This deserves a sequel.

Very well-narrated stuff, and I'm enjoying the hybrid animational style too. Can't really put it all together. Seems like a mix of stopmotion and animated... would be cool with some behind the scenes on some of this too.


I want to know what happened afterwards!

totally fair
good job!

they need bigger hands

Well, this was awesome! I love how you used mixed media (fantastic job there!) and the story was good too. I do wonder, though: how did this relationship unfold? Did JR stop bothering the other kid or did he finally beat him up... during some other lunch?

Kudos, dude. Hope to see more from you! =)

Thanks man! My dad actually ended up becoming pals with JR lmao. He even went to his birthday party a couple weeks later.
