A reader writes, "Lewis Carroll's Alice takes an eventful trip on a streetcar in contemporary Toronto in this short stop-motion animated video.
The character of Alice from Lewis Carroll's famous children's novels is transported to contemporary Toronto where, like many native Torontonians, she takes a ride on the streetcar. As with many trips on the public transit, she encounters a succession of strange characters who engage her in (equally strange) conversations. The dialogue is borrowed directly from Through the Looking-Glass, but given a fresh & funny new twist in this stop-motion animation.
Jennifer Linton is trying to raise funds for sound recording to an already visually complete project."
Linton's work is very beautiful, and she's looking to raise a very modest sum to finish a movie that looks just great. It's a pity that there isn't a low reward level that gets you online access to the finished short, though -- this would be a cheap reward for Linton to deliver and would let the movie's patrons see what they've funded ($25 gets you a Blu-Ray disc of all of Linton's work).
Update: She's added a private Vimeo link to watch the movie as a $10 perk!
