Felted Puppets Wrestle In Stop Motion Animation


Felted puppets come to life in the quirky stop motion animations of Emma De Swaef and Marc James Roels. The trailer for their short film called Fight!, which features two puppets engaging in a surprisingly graceful yet baffling wrestling match, was recently selected for the National Animation Festival in Bruz, France.

It’s amazing how much humanity and subtle reactions can be conveyed by these little handmade puppets! Maybe everyone should animate their felted creations.


If you’d like to see more of this sort of thing, check out their animated short called Oh Willy.
