The Game

  • The child is expected to quickly grab the finger after the first sentence of the rhyme
  • Move index finger away to avoid getting caught by the child

Overall idea: Comparison between the rhyme and the growth of a child &

the idea that this rhyme is passed on for generations.

  • Scene 1: A room with a child and his father. (点虫虫, point the worm)
  • Scene 2: A butterfly pupa hanging on tree branch. (点虫虫, point the worm)
  • Scene 3: The child playing the game with his father. (点虫虫, point the worm)
  • Scene 4: A butterfly pupa hanging on tree branch. (点虫虫, point the worm)
  • Scene 3 and 4 repeated a few times to show the comparison.
  • Scene 5: A butterfly emerged slowly from the pupa and flies to nearby lychee tree (飞到荔枝基, flies to lychee trees)
  • Scene 6: The child (slightly older) went out to the lychee trees to play. (荔枝熟, the lychees ripen)
  • Scene 7: The child always picked lots of lychee fruits back to his house. (摘满屋, Lots of lychees are picked)
  • Scene 8: A room filled with lychees with a happy child (even older) (屋满红,陪住个细蚊公, that it fills up the room with a little boy)
  • Scene 9: Everything disappeared. Only a old man (the child) in a room.

Yes, my style of drawing. Anyone wants to collaborate? 😀

I don’t mind working on other projects with animation stop-motion.
