This short film was created by Jarid Waniger and Tyler Nelson last semester in Digital Studio class. Chelsey Luther created the related graphics. The students were asked to create a digital narrative inspired by a fairy tale or myth. In fairy tale studies, The Juniper Tree can be one of the more gruesome tale types, following the pattern: “my mother slew me, my father ate me” or the more common pattern of having the dead child be the boy. see Story Synopsis.
