How To Catch a Bird is a stop motion short based on a childhood memory. It's the graduation film I made for my masters in animation at AKV St. Joost Breda.
When I was eight; my dad taught me how to fish. He told me to take the worm off the hook after fishing, but I had no idea why. After fishing I forgot about the worm and left it dangling on the hook. If I only knew then what the consequence of this action would be.
