To celebrate the first Polydactyl Pictures Christmas season we decided to “dip a toe” into the unfamiliar water of stop-motion animation. Our modest budget would not allow for outside casting or fancy set design so this animation was created 100% in-house (literally, we shot it in our dining room). When our devoted manikin, Atticus, volunteered to star in the film with his lovely wife, we were thrilled (mostly because Atticus’ day rate is far below scale).
We hope you enjoy watching our first animation production and would love to hear your comments.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Polydactyl Pictures!!
Currently in Production:“Magic Toast”, an animated fairytale about a little princess, her extraordinary mother and a small adventure that changes everything. This short film is perfect for a children's audience but
will also touch the hearts of anyone who has been raised by a single parent.
