Amazing iStopMotion animation made by Rick McLean. All the sets and the puppet were debris I had gathered a from the Deukmejian Wilderness Park which was destroyed in the 2009 CA wildfires. The animation was made to promote donations and awareness to rebuild the ravaged park. It was inspired by a foundation called 'Art from the Ashes" which puts on art shows. These shows including many artists that gather objects from places that are distroyed by fire. Pieces are then created and sold to to benefit the rebuilding of the Park.
