For Andrea, wool as a medium lends itself to stories that take place in natural worlds: landscapes, water, organic scenes. It works well with character-driven stories because puppets are so engaging. It’s also refreshingly understated. There isn’t the over-the-top exaggeration that exists in some other forms of animation. With wool stop motion, everything is a bit more subtle, subdued, shrewd, and sublime. It’s the perfect material for expressing nuance and naturalism.
