After a summer of being holed up in my room I have finally finished my latest stop-motion: “The Hunt of the Alpaca”. The story follows a hungry alpaca who runs into trouble after going on the hunt for a tasty snack. It’s a satirical fairtytale based on The Hunt of the Unicorn tapestry. While it’s going through the film festival circuit, it will not be readily available on the web. Once it is, I’ll post the link here! You can check out a preview on the @uscanimation Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/p/BYOulDMgOel/?hl=en&taken-by=uscanimation
“Why an alpaca?”, you may ask. Well, I like alpacas. Wait, scratch that, I LOVE alpacas. I really enjoy what bizarrely cute animals they are. Their oddly long necks, gangly hooved feet, the one or two teeth that usually stick out from between their lips, and, not to mention, they’re fluffy as fudge! You don’t know the true meaning of soft until you’ve gotten a hug from a cria (baby alpaca). Anyone up to opening an alpaca farm with me?
Update: The film is out! Watch it here: https://vimeo.com/230542264
