Cain and Abel

Cain and Abel is an animation video based on selected midrashim. Midrashim are Rabbinic literature which expounds on stories in the Bible. Often the midrash will offer a different, maybe contradictory, interpretation or insight to the Biblical text.

I have chosen the format of stop-motion animation for a series of videos based on midrashic interpretations of familiar Biblical stories. I built the figurines out of different coloured clays, and used other props. The medium is simple, basic, and even child-like, but the subject is deep and serious.
