Benjamin’s Picture Book

Benjamin’s Picture Book (2000)

2000-07-18, Hawaiian Gardens CA.
Based on my father’s memories spending his afternoons with his “Abuelita” (grandmother) as a kindergartner. This “popsicle-stick” animation was created using the characters and scenes drawn by 1st & 2nd graders, 1st & 2nd grade actors/animators and 2nd grade readers during a 2000 summer school session at my Magnet school, Furgeson Academy of Communication & Technology (FACT) in Hawaiian Garden, CA. Enjoy.
