The Shepherd Boy and The Wolf: A Stop-Motion Adaptation
Directed by Timothy Schultz.
United States. (11 mins.)
Although many people are familiar with the tradional moral tale of The Boy Who Cried Wolf, this adaptation follows Aesop’s story with a less-than-traditional approach. Not only is the character of the boy brought to life through his humorous antics, the entire film is enhanced through unique artistry that combines 10,000 still photographs with modern graphics. It is a fresh take on a timeless modern classic.

Without Wings
Directed by Jo Meuris.
Canada. (4 mins.)
Without Wings is a celebration of the human body in motion. The feats of athleticism performed by dancers and acrobats as they leap, soar, flip and spin through the movements of dance. Re-created by hand and woven together in a symphony of animated figures, this gorgeous short rejoices in the amazing ways the human body is able to defy gravity.
