Watch: ‘The Girl and the Fox’ is a Fantastical Animated Fairy Tale

By  · Published on June 6th, 2012

Why Watch? Pay close attention to the outstanding lighting design in this animated short from Base14. It’s a combination of exaggeratedly detailed backgrounds and comic-strip-simple characters, but even beyond the beauty, the real joy is the story. Oh, and the adorable cartoon fox.

In it, a young girl hunts down the vicious killer of her family’s chickens. No doubt Humans vs Foxes will be the next big mash-up blockbuster. For now, enjoy this sweet piece of work (and maybe watch The Fox and the Hound as an ironic double feature).

What will it cost? Only 5 minutes.
