A TALE OF A SASSY LITTLE GIRL

A Tale Of A Sassy Little Girl (USA, 2017) is a stop motion animation short film dedicated to all little girls and women of all age to remind them that we have the strength and courage within us to face our own monsters, and the tools and the creativity to fight and defeat them.

900+ shots.
2 weeks shooting and editing.
An Idea and production by Circle Entertainment.
