Back in the spring(ish) of '09, SMFA was having it's Film Annual in which the best of the school's films, videos, and animations were screened in front of a heafty audience in the MFA. I had been in the annual the year before with a piece about Facebook (that I did in about a day to appease a Tufts paper requirement), and I wanted a good follow-up to what I considered to be a piece of crap. My main focus for the semester, however, wasn't anywhere near complete. So, within the next two or three days, I completed this short about a boy and a scarecrow. The idea actually came from a stop-motion short my brother, Grif, and I had been working on for a class a few years back, but never really completed because the class ended before we could finish.
