Pigeon Pilfer by Michael Stevenson

Pigeon Pilfer from Michael Stevenson on Vimeo.

Pigeons are great, they're so funny! I love sitting at my local cafe on the seafront watching them terrorise tourists - trying to literally steal their food off their plates, it's hilarious!

Michael Stevenson's stop motion film, Pigeon Pilfer captures their characteristics brilliantly. Created at San Francisco State University as part of his course, it took 4 months to make and used 60lbs of clay! It was all worthwhile though as it cam Runner up in Animation at the Sundial Film festival 2009 and was an official selection of the San Francisco United Film Festival 2009 and the Animation Block Party 2009.

Visit Pigeon Pilfer for more information about the making of the film.

Glad he liked it -I’ll have to show it to my niece, bet she’ll like it to.

Thanks for the feature! The pigeon attack on one of my first trips to San Francisco was just begging to be animated.
