Back in December, I worked on a brief animation for the documentary “Stitched.” Here it is! I think it took us 15 hours to shoot these 17 seconds of animation. It was a long day, but a lot of fun. Many thanks to all the friends who pitched in to make tiny props and to the director of photography, Seng Chen. After the shoot, I re-purposed some of the people in the grand stands into greeting cards. Pine cone skier is hanging out on my mantle. (Photos of the production here).

“Stitched” has its world premiere at the International Quilt Festival in Cincinnati, OH this Friday, April 8. To see where else it’s playing, visit their site here.
