I created this for a major project. The video was created for Amanda Seyfried’s version of Little Red Riding Hood, and the video follows the story of how Little Red Riding Hood got her cloak, as told in the song and the original story. Watch and find out, or read on to know more about the lore.

“Little Red Riding Hood”, also known as “Little Red Cap” or simply “Red Riding Hood”, is a French and later European fairy tale about a young girl and a Big Bad Wolf. The story has been changed considerably in its history and subject to numerous modern adaptations and readings. The story was first published by Charles Perrault.

The origins of the Little Red Riding Hood story can be traced to versions from various European countries and more than likely preceding the 17th century, of which several exist, some significantly different from the currently known, Grimms-inspired version. It was told by French peasants in the 10th century. In Italy, the Little Red Riding Hood was told by peasants in 14th century, where a number of versions exist, including La finta nonna (The False Grandmother). It has also been called “The Story of Grandmother”. It is also possible that this early tale has roots in very similar Oriental tales (e.g. “Grandaunt Tiger”). This was a very fun and challenging project, Watch the video I created here:

Special thanks to Amanda Seyfried for this wonderful rendition of the 60’s classic Little Red Riding Hood by Sam Sham and the Pharaohs.
