“A small girl is crying because there is a hole in her stomach,” writer, director, and animator Rebecca Manley writes on Vimeo. “Suddenly a mysterious horse appears and things begin to change…”

This is The Girl and the Horse, Manley’s 2011 animated short for Channel 4. It was animated with sand on glass, and includes stop-motion cake, dress, and model house handmade props.
