Fables and Legends of the Americas
FAKELORE: Fables and Legends of the Americas is a stop-motion animation series inspired by folktales from North and South American countries. The series, dedicated to kids, retells cultural stories from the past through a combination of traditional stop-motion animation, digital techniques, and fabricated environments.
Each story is photographed from an overhead perspective, using pixilation stop motion with live actors. The style of storytelling melds the 2D and 3D through hand-drawn and sculpted props, editing the piece into a stop motion animation narrative.
