A gawky Snake and his neighbor, Butterfly, come to life on a vocabulary worksheet in this four minute animation.

 

 

 

Synopsis

 

Snake and Butterfly are neighbors. Covetous Butterfly wants something from his serpentine compatriot, but what?

 

‘Vocabulary 1’ unfolds through illustrations on school worksheets. As the drawings start to move, a story emerges in the gaps between images, as if the viewer were glimpsing lives through windows, constructing narrative from details.

Juxtaposing charming animation with deft, innovative narrative construction, this unusual animation explores how we piece together narrative from the sources around us.
