Created by Mai Ly Degnan for her MFA Illustration Practice thesis, Hopelessly Devoted, a Ghost Story is a stop motion animation made entirely from photographed illustrations hand cut, built into layers, and animated with paper doll puppets. The short focuses on blind love, unhealthy one-sided relationships, breakups, and moving on. Set in baltimore, the story focuses on a ghost "hopelessly devoted" to a boy who is completely unaware of her existence. Circumstances eventually change and she must learn to move on.
