A Woolen Ape Explores a Backyard Garden in a New Short from Marc & Emma

May 12, 2015

Christopher Jobson

As part of a promotional campaign for Wonderlijk Wild (Miraculously Wild), an effort to encourage home gardening in Belgium, filmmaking duo Emma De Swaef and Marc James Roels of Marc & Emma were hired to create this wonderful short about a felted green ape exploring the outdoors. You might remember their work from this other woolen animation featuring two doughy wrestlers for the National Animation Festival last year. (via Vimeo)

Update: An earlier version of this post referred to the film as “stop-motion” when in fact it’s actually live-action puppeteering.
