The Three Girls

(Video Link)

The Three Girls is a stop-motion animated movie by Laura Seymou, a six-year old girl, and Angela Sheehan, her adult sister. It's like Axe Cop, except that the child did all of the drawing. Sheehan writes:

This is a stop-motion collage I made, based on drawings by my little sister (six years old at the time). Back in 2005, I was studying animation and taking classes in childhood development/learning and wanted to combine the two. I decided to make a movie with her over Thanksgiving break. I gave her some paper and crayons and asked her to write me a story. I took some video of her drawing and showing her grandparents the story and describing it to them. It was fun to see how she told the story differently to each person and all the little details she included when asked about different parts of the drawings. Back at school, I scanned her drawings in and printed out copies that I then animated to her narration. My dorm room was a giant mess of paper and a camera for about a week. It was a blast. I showed her the finished product over my winter break and she loved it. I would've loved to involve her more in the actual animation process, but my school was too far away.
