Mother Christmas

Mother Christmas is a festive fairy tale that I wrote and illustrated through shadow puppetry for this years Pack of Wolves Christmas treat! The film introduces a female figure as the bearer of Christmas, and the treasures she gives to a penniless and selfless girl who lives with her Papa and wicked Stepma. The story cautions against greed and consumption whilst encouraging and reminding us of the simpler festive pleasures and the kind act of giving and sharing.

This was a collaborative project with Spike Dennis who worked with the digital, filming and editing aspects.

Merry Christmas!
