New Zealand Book Council - Going West



I just had to post this paper animation because it is absolutely remarkable. I got the link from Lina. Thank you so much Lina! I can only imagine the amount of work that this short required. After seeing all the expressive possibilities of stop-motion animation I won't be to able to stop all the motion in my mind... unless I create my own short one day. But first I need to learn as much as possible about the technique. Any help with this will be highly appreciated: links to tutorials, links to other remarkable animation shorts for inspiration, information about books, anything. My husband got a me a fat giant book that it's supposed to be the animation bible, that will be my staring point.

I promise to post my first stop-motion movie in this blog when it becomes a reality. It will take a while but I will make it happen.

Elsita :)
