Skeleton Girl is Canada's first stereoscopic 3D stop motion animated short film created and produced in Calgary, Alberta, Canada by Skeleton Girl Productions Inc. in association with Bleeding Art Industries. Skeleton Girl was recognized as a creative and technical accomplishment in New York where it won Best First 3D Film at its world premiere at the renowned Be Film The Underground Film Festival in 2012. It has been on the festival circuit for close to 2 years now with invitations to screen it still coming in.
Skeleton Girl is the story of Millicent, a small orphan girl who lives in a land of make-believe and her overactive imagination. One day as she goes for a walk in the woods, Millicent comes upon an abandoned cemetery where she takes a valuable gem from one of the gravestones. That night, during a spectacular thunderstorm, she begins to hear the tapping of bony fingers, and soon a cacophony of noises and images play out on the walls of her room. As a skeleton pays a visit to retrieve what is rightfully hers, Millicent soon discovers why it isn’t a good idea to steal from the dead.
