Video short animation "Feast in a Fallen City" by Aron Bothman

Watch "Feast in a Fallen City" (3 min) Chinese ghost story fantasy set wartime 1930s China. Life, but not memory, passes from generation to generation. Perhaps, a social commentary on the last hundred years of city and town growth - which has displaced animals from their traditional territories, pushed them off know lands into unknown lands. Stop motion with 3D printer puppet faces and some 3D CGI and traditional 2D animation.

Directed by Aron Bothman
