Karol’s Tale

The goal of ‘Karol’s Tale’ project is to present the problem of bullying, which as a result leads to loneliness and difficulties with self-acceptance. I designed a short animated stop motion video and a picture book, which are targeted at children but people of all ages can relate to the theme of my project. The medium I chose was motivated by my interest in stop motion animation as well as handmade 3D modeling and my aim was to explore intricacies of these two means of visual communication. In particular, I focused on creating detailed props in order to set up the story in an environment that would speak to my target audience.
