Eat That Soup!
“Eat That Soup!” Is a fictional animation short about ‘escapism’, made for children aged 6 to 9. It’s a 2D frame-by-frame animation, made with Toom Boom Harmony. Things that inspire my work are myths and legends, therefore my animation is based on a Dutch folktale (Het Grote Schip).
The short is about a young boy, named Tommy, who is forced to eat his disgusting soup. He really doesn’t want that, so he tries to find a way to escape it. Eventually he finds a way, but ends up in a whole other world. Everything seems to be fine at first, but later Tommy gets himself more and more in trouble. Will Tommy get out of this or should’ve he just eaten his soup?
