A young girl is led out of the darkness of her despairing void by her dream guardian, a creature named Kahinakuya. (Ka-heen-ah-kuu-yah).

This was my second project in Stop Motion I class at SCAD college. I worked by myself on this one, and designed, constructed, and animated two characters. One was claymation with faceplates and fabric clothes, the other was a 'plushie puppet' made from sewn and stuffed fabric over the wire skeleton (think a plushie for stop motion :P ). For an idea of scale, Kahinakuya is about 13 inches tall.

The set was nothing more than black base with black fabric all around the sides, and some fancy lighting (harder to set up that spotlight look than you think. o_o ).

Music was audio-swapped from what I originally used cause I wanted to use free-use music instead. It doesn't match as well but oh well. :(

And I need to inform that I somehow got my professor's name wrong in the credits it's Professor Hal MILES, I don't know where I came up with 'Sparks'... I think I did those credits at like 5 in the morning when I was finishing this in time for class.
