STOP MOTION FUN
This month were featuring the ever-mesmerizing first form of animation, Stop Motion. This intriguing technique has brought to life favorites from the early King Kong movies, to Gumby, Wallace & Gromit, and such current Hollywood Box Office hits as Tim Burtons The Corpse Bride and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Producing stop motion animation is an art form akin to ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging, with intense attention paid to positioning objects, taking photos, moving the objects slightly and repeating the process in order to create a sense of movement through sequential images.
