Melissa Block talks with Oscar winner Hugh Welchman. He produced Peter and the Wolf, which won Best Animated Short.
The film retells Prokofiev's story in stop-motion animation, with only the orchestral music for narration. It also updates the famous story of Peter, placing him in a poor, industrial wasteland.
Welchman explains the motivation that led to the creation of such a dark version of the story.
