Mouse In House

Mouse In House is a series of four stop-motion animated shorts by Portly Pig Studios. These stop-motion videos utilize taxidermy mice (don't worry they died of natural causes) in an 1800s-esque setting. Portly Pig did a fabulous job creating custom made clothing and set pieces to give the vignettes a consistent and detailed world to reside in. The idea of re-animating something that has died may seem morbid to some, but this concept of creating life with taxidermy creatures is a unique and exquisitely adorable concept!

I had a great time creating sound and music for these shorts!
