A Short Film Made from Cross Stitching

(Video Link)

Maggie and Mildred is a short film by Holly Klein about the make-believe adventures of two little girls. She cross stitched all of the characters and scenes, and then animated them. In an interview about the project, Klein wrote:

It took me about nine months to stitch all of the elements. I stitched the house first, then made the characters with all of their parts and outfits seperately. I then scanned everything into the computer, cut them out, and animated them in the computer. The whole process took me just under two years.

Loved the laughter, the story, the imagination, the work involved. So sweet!

Fantastic talent, endless creativity and keen artistry on details. If there is one thing that I would like to improved, it would be the animation and editing touches. Though it may be difficult to make a high quality film with such a limited budget, it is possible through collaboration and constant practice.
