The Woodstock Film Festival is sharing animated films by our alum filmmakers for you to stream from the comfort of your home. 

Q&A with Beck Underwood, the director and animator for “An Exquisite Task”, which screened at the festival in 2017.

Synopsis: Set in an old barn slated for teardown, a vintage doll, a mysterious barn spirit and some mischievous farm critters, come together in this stopmotion short about motherhood, creativity and letting go.
