Tegan the Vegan, which you can watch here in full, is a stop motion film that draws on the experiences of director Marisa Martin who became a vegetarian at 12 after visiting an abattoir.
The characters were made from epoxy putty, polymer clay, aluminium foil, foam and magnets.
The cast boasts a number of well-known actors, including Noni Hazlehurst as Mrs Poodle and Tegan's Mum; Paul McDermott as Trent, Dorian and Bryan; and Charli Robinson as Tegan.
This form of animation, sometimes called claymation, is highly time consuming. It took a week to create six seconds of film.
