I’ve been a fan of animator Kris Hofmann’s stop motion work since seeing her true lives of the animals we eat piece Breakfast a couple years ago. Her new piece Screwed Up is a charming film about not knowing a good thing until it’s gone, which stars a nut and a bolt. Kris joins me to discuss scaring children (and angering parents) with the truth and how animation is a the perfect cure for a broken heart.

I like to work with objects. I like to give life to objects.
