The Wizard of Flaws

The Wizard of Flaws is a retelling of the classic story The Wizard of Oz. This time placing Dorothy in the modern world faced with the desires to fit in with societies’ standards of beauty. She contemplates the idea of plastic surgery before discovering that true beauty lies within your brain and your heart. I created this stop motion story in collaboration with Jordan Barnett and Melanie Socash.
