The Girl and the Fox was Tyler J. Kupferer's thesis film for his masters at Savannah College of Art and Design. The piece is a well made, hand drawn digital animation employing a forty strong crew from one of the colleges I have ear-marked for my series on great schools of animation. The praise on Vimeo is well merited though I had no tears myself: foxes is foxes and I lived on a farm with hens! But this fox is literally heart warming and the sentimentalised glow of the artwork and lighting possesses a winning quality. Tyler could have been a little harder hitting in the depiction, say, of the slaughter of the livestock and my snow storm would have had more bite to it. Different film this - Disney not Tarantino. Tyler's got talent, has led his gifted team conspicuously well, and created a film you could show to the kids without fear of nightmares.
