"The Arctic Circle" is a beautifully crafted stop motion movie that is challenging, compelling, and thought provoking— everything great art should be. The three+ minute piece was developed by Kevin Parry, a student at Canada's Sheridan College, who spent over a year painstakingly moving his characters through the simple yet complex story of need, want, and greed.

Parry's piece earned him a spot in a Master Class taught by stop motion filmmaking icon Tim Burton who called The Arctic Circle "really great". Parry shared the link of Burton watching his film on the post that he wrote on Reddit first announcing the piece.
