Winning ANIMATION Short Screenplay: BARRINGTON BUNNY, by Sandy Wolf

This Christian allegory is to be animated in a surreal style, suggesting religious pageantry and a supernatural presence. The story is embellished by John Luther Adams music suggesting the crystalline beauty of the arctic winter. The use of dialects and bits of costuming and props suggest an international significance to the plot.
