Why is stop motion animation so cool?

December 18, 2007

I love it, I really do. Is it the effort that’s put in? Is it the staggering amounts of labour required to get the finished product on the screen?

Or is it that they fool us so completely into thinking that the puppets are moving and alive and have emotions and can make us laugh and smile all while really being a series of still poses captured as moving picture?

Grommit says a lot without saying a word. Morph always made me laugh as a kid and now the Bravia bunnies are gorgeous beyond belief.

I’ve already blogged about how cool the bunnies are (for everyone except Anya of course) and now there’s a making of the bunnies vid. Enjoy.
