A little background information...

This was the last Boxhead & Roundhead film I made before being funded for the feature.
Like the rest of the shorts, I had an itch in my head and needed to get it out of my system so I could go on with my life.

How was the film made?

Mostly on an old PC laptop when I had the time.

Stop motion + wool. The only that would make me happier is if it had chickens in it. Watch this - it's gorgeous.
