NARRATION AND ALL GRAPHICS BY EMILY, A SEVEN-YEAR-OLD GIRL. OFFICIAL SELECTION: 2008 NASHVILLE FILM FESTIVAL, 2008 CHICAGO INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S FILM FESTIVAL, and the 2009 NATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL FOR TALENTED YOUTH.

From Homer's Odyssey, this is the story of Odysseus' run-in with Polyphemus the cyclops. Guys get eaten, the cyclops gets blinded, you know the story.

In case anyone's interested, this was done with some plain letter-size paper, some el cheapo watercolors, a scanner, along with Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.

This is what can happen when you let young people do animation. Even if they frequently refuse to go to bed.
