Director Biography - Alice Rose Parker

Alice-Rose is a recent Motion Graphics graduate from Ravensbourne University with a passion for storytelling. She is 22 years old and grew up in Berkshire but moved to London to study and pursue a career in animation. Since she was a child she has been in complete awe of animated films, watching them over and over again trying to figure out how they were created, so going to university and learning how to animate has been a very exciting and rewarding experience for her. She enjoys experimenting with different styles of animation in particular; hand drawn frame-by-frame animation, 2D animation, and stop-motion. She hopes to one-day land her dream job creating beautiful stop-motion animations just like the ones created by her idols; Aardman Animations, Laika Studios, and Tim Burton.

Director Statement

This was my first time making a stop-motion film and I enjoyed every single minute of it. I got the inspiration for the narrative while in Krakow, Poland, after seeing a little girl give all her money to an old homeless lady. This lead me to design each building of the set to look like stylized versions of real buildings in Krakow.
