“My home, sweet, home. Where I feel free. You beautiful castle with a wooden dome…” Meet the fearless and courageous Mr. Hedgehog. We highly recommend this cute short film titled The hedgehog house, a stop-motion animated short directed by a Montreal filmmaker Eva cvijanovic. The short is about, as you might have guessed, a hedgehog living in a forest who pokes fun at a cunning fox, a greedy bear, an evil wolf and a muddy boar. Cvijanovic creates his shorts using felt and fabric, which gives them a particularly cuddly look and feel. With the voice of Kenneth Welsh as a narrator, delivering a sweet little poem based on the classic story of Branko Ćopić. Featuring upbeat and funky music from Darko Rundek. It’s a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to the feeling of comfort we all get from being residence, and what a house means. Take a look below.
