“Winter’s Blight” by Claire Campbell is a truly touching stop motion animation about a lonely recluse who lives out in the woods trying to keep himself warm in the winter. He realizes that he needs to chop down a tree but neither had the will or the energy to do it himself, yet he perseveres as best he can. It’s only when an unlikely friend, who had been looking out for him all along, keeps the old man from freezing to death.
In a clearing amongst a forest of pines lives a lonely old man who struggles to keep himself warm, though help comes from an unexpected friend.
Here’s a wonderful behind-the-scenes look at this wonderful short film.
