Watch: Stop-Motion Short Film 'Hedgehog's Home' by Eva Cvijanovic
"My home, sweet, home. Where I feel free. You beautiful castle with a wooden dome…" Meet the fearless, brave Mr. Hedgehog. We highly recommend this lovely short film titled Hedgehog's Home, a stop-motion animated short film made by Montreal-based filmmaker Eva Cvijanovic. The short is about, as you might have guessed, a hedgehog living in a forest who is made fun of by a sly fox, a greedy bear, a wicked wolf, and a muddy wild boar. Cvijanovic creates her shorts using felt and cloth, which gives them an especially cuddly look and feel. Featuring the voice of Kenneth Welsh as the narrator, delivering a sweet little poem based on the the classic story by Branko Ćopić. Featuring twangy, funky music by Darko Rundek. It's a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to the feeling of comfort we all have being at home, and what a home means. Watch below.
