Woman Creates Touching Animated Portrait of Her Grandmother Using Her Old Possessions

May 1, 2014

Christopher Jobson

After the death of her grandmother in 2010, animator and illustrator Gemma Green-Hope was called to help sort through some of her remaining possessions. What she discovered evoked not only memories, but also resulted in a new understanding of who her grandmother was by cataloging the objects she left behind. Green-Hope transformed the old books, clothes, jewelry and photos into this touching stop-motion portrait. Also, spoiler: her grandmother shot a spider. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)
