"Auntie Claus" Behind the Scenes Short Film

So, if you haven't yet heard about Athena Studio's upcoming project Auntie Claus well, you've missed out. A couple weeks ago Athena Studios announced that they would be produce a feature length Stop Motion animated film based off the children's novel Auntie Claus by Elise Primavera.  This topic is one of the most hot topics for us animation geeks right now.  Athena, is currently doing a Kickstarter for the film, so if you want to check that out go to the link right here.  Anyway, MAKE: Magazine recently published a making of video on their YouTube channel on the making of Auntie Claus and I thought I would share it with you.  It's well worth six minutes of your time to watch this, it also provides an in-depth look at the main character puppet.  Who knows?  Maybe Athena will be the next LAIKA.
