A short computer animated film. 15 mins.

Set from 1910 to the early 1930s in Paris.  It's loosely based on the sculptor Rodin and his creation of "The Kiss" statue.

Woody is the resulting child of a very cold night liaison between two of Rodin's wooden mannequins. A little wooden boy that is missing his penis. And the story of his life in and around Paris and where he finds his missing part as a young adult in the 1930s. 

The film has an unusual art direction - everything is as if Rodin sees it - as a statue. Everything is frozen. Nearly everything is in b & w for most of the movie.  All adults are nude statues. Your mind has to fill in the colour and texture of the scenes. 

Apart from the camera, only 6 scenes have movement in the film.
