Introducing Cocoa Stones cereal, inspired by vintage cereal commercials. This video envisions the joy and anticipation of waiting for a special prize to fall from the cereal box, relative to the way we feel nowadays as we wait for new Stone horses to be revealed. Cereal Surprise, a silver brindle Thoroughbred, is my vision of the ideal prize horse, awarded to those who collect all the cereal prizes.
Any Equestrians Dream is about the fact that no matter who you are, every equestrian would love to have a model horse done after their horse. In my short film I show my Peter Stones coming together to figure out how to bring my real life horse Catcher home as a model horse! Catcher is definitely my dream model horse!
"Category: My Dream Model
Artist's Description: If Charlie Chaplin and Bob Ross could combine their artistic talents and create a movie, this definitely wouldn't be it. Abserd attempts to teach Butters the ""joy of painting"" while attempting to create a ""model"" masterpiece."
This short film is inteaded not only to show my love of STONEs models but also to show my love to the artists and the people of stone as well as the whole community surrounding them. It is lighthearted and nostalgic. I hope that others are able to see it and reflect on what they love most about Stone Horses as well.
"I created this video to depict my dream model in a way that told a story using my favorite method of story telling -- stop motion. This video gave me the chance to challenge myself by using non-posable figures to tell a story.
I created the props, artwork, and animations. It was especially rewarding to work with a variety of mediums, from sculpting and painting the props and art, to the photography and lighting, and the technology of animation and audio.
I chose to present my favorite fairy-tale in a retelling that fit the vision of my dream horse. In the end, the Frog Prince and Princess come together for their Hoppily Ever After, giving life to their heir, a princely foal with aspects of a frog."
