Tegan the Vegan is a 2011 stop-motion animation short film which stars the voices of Charli Delaney, Noni Hazlehurst, Paul McDermott and Pippa Black. It is produced by Enemies of Reality media, based in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, and voice recording was completed in Sydney and Melbourne.[1]


The film is about Tegan, a 12-year-old student who finds out where meat comes from, and decides to become a vegetarian. She must contend with Elenore the Carnivore. The plot is based partly on the experience of the director, Marisa Martin, who became a vegetarian when she was 12 after visiting an abattoir.[2]


The puppets were made using aluminium foil, epoxy putty, polymer clay, foam and magnets (in the feet to help them stay up). Filming the puppets was a long process, taking around a week to make six seconds of film.[2]
