This short is inspired by my love of fishing, particularly for freshwater perch on Lake Huron. Nearly every summer of my existence has included trips to my grandparent's summer house in the U.P. where I have enjoyed many days fishing for these little fish off of the dock. The character is inspired by Puddleglum the marsh-wiggle from The Chronicles of Narnia. I imagine marsh-wiggles looking something like this while they are out fishing on the marshes. I animated this for the final project in the multiplane section of my Animation Workshop class.
