Peter and the Wolf Stop Motion Short Film

Over the weekend, I saw a stunning combination of good old fashioned stop motion animation and skillful CGI. This animated retelling of Sergei Prokofiev’s classic musical piece Peter and the Wolf, written and directed by Suzie Templeton, won an Oscar for Best Animated Short Film in 2006.


The characters and scenery are incredibly striking. Peter and the Wolf share the same piercing, mildly unsettling ice blue eyes, and this film captured and held my attention from the first frame. I highly recommend this for ANY fans of stop motion animation.

Many thanks to Casey for showing this to me!
