Tegan is 12, in love with the coolest boy in class and just found out where meat comes from. Tegan struggles against her friends, her teachers and her family in her attempts to stay true to her heart and at 12 years old – that’s no mean feat!
This quaint story is told in painstaking stop-motion animation, with the entire world being built at 1:5 scale and photographed frame at a time. The film begins with Tegan’s discovery and then quickly becomes a face-off between Tegan the Vegan and Elenore the Carnivore. Who will get the glory…and the boy?
The film was shot on a Canon EOS Digital Stills Camera using Dragon Stop Motion, After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Photoshop.
