december 18th: WRAPPED

"As a group, we brainstormed ideas for our prompt, WRAPPING PAPER. We came up with the idea that you can become haunted by something you do that's wrong, like stealing. We visited a store in our neighborhood called Obscura where they sell lots of old, creepy things. The idea grew from there. We wanted to blend live-action and animation techniques we had used on other projects. We rewrote a classic Christmas carol as the soundtrack for our story. We involved the whole Lower East SIde Girls CLub family, especially when we went around filming jump scares!"

 

Intructors: Kelly Adams, Andrea Betanzos and Beck Underwood
