Afternoon Tea

Animation

Project

This stop-motion animation describes my version of the afternoon tea.

The tea-related ritual, introduced in Britain in the early 1840s and to me in 2005, is my second favourite meal after breakfast.

In this project I combined the traditional English afternoon tea with the classical sweet Italian "merenda", the afternoon snack.
During the years, as the 4-o'clock chocolate craving approached, I perfected the ritual introducing, testing and removing items and finally simplifying the process to the bare essentials: English breakfast tea with milk, sugar and shortbread biscuits.

The animation was created with iStopMotion and edited using Adobe After Effects.
