So, you want to be an artist's model?

"Wooden Model"
This wooden model is portrayed as a human model for an artist doing life drawing but gets tired of staying in one position much as I'm sure real life models do. He gets bored and taps his foot, muscles tiring so the arm drops. Here the artist begins to get annoyed with having to keep adjusting the model.

I like the way the wooden figure rubs it's eyes to wake up and the music seems to have been picked to be a bit silly which fits the imagery. The pencil sounds are perfect for showing what's going on out of shot and the 'Grrr' sounds from the artist. When the figure gets a bit cheeky and tries to annoy the artist by changing position completely then the relationship between artist
and model shows most.
All in all, I really enjoyed the film but think the fantasy was spoiled when the figure walked off because of the wire sticking out.
