Poly's Feast (2013)

Poly's Feast is a humorous interpretation of Homer's Odyssey that illustrates the amused reaction of two Greek soldiers with the view of a tiny cyclops, behind whose cute and innocent look hides an insatiable predator. Poly's Feast is unique as it is a CG film which emulates the miniature look of a stop motion set, but whilst giving the characters the snappy motion typical of 2D animation masters such as Tex Avery.
