Out from the deep, dark woods, creep, creep creeping come the Hobyar men...

Woodcut animation makes a traditional tale to keep children awake at night.

A 5 minute animated film, directed by Ben Mars.

Based on a folk tale sometimes called Little Dog Turpie and the Hobyahs / Hobyar men,
the animation style is inspired by German Expressionist woodcuts and
the drawings of John D. Batten in Joseph Jacobs' Fairy Tales Books.
