the girl who fell in love with the moon (2019) is a Claymation that Francisco Máximo created for his 3rd Final Degree Show. Using plasticine as the essential material of the piece, the 4-minute Claymation narrates a story of girl named Claire captivatedly in love with the Moon.
On a superficial view, the stop-motion animation is a simple and child target narrative. In a more conceptual level, the girl who fell in love with the moon (2019) is based on the ideal of obsession. Claire is evidently obsessed with the Moon, represent throughout her room and her items. The concept of obsession is also represented through the eyes of the director, where himself becomes obsessed with Claire’s obsession. The use of squared frame animation is used to focus on a single character or an object. Knowing that Claire appears in 90% of movie, the animator wants the audience to focus on her obsession and become personal with it.
