The Mouse and the Christmas Cake
“The Mouse and the Christmas Cake” was inspired by a short story of the same title written over 125 years ago by an anonymous author from England. To tell the story I felt it was important to capture the setting from that very era. Much of this animation is set in a realistic environment with only the mouse being somewhat stylized such that she could convey actions and emotions suitable to a human character. The story is narrated by a grandfatherly voice as if he were telling a bedtime story.
