The Story So Far... GLOSSY

I always watch stop motion and think "Holy Jeebus, that is so tight. I'm wanna do that." Then I realise that I'm probably not cut out for the workload, tediousness and precision shooting of stop motion. Which makes each little film I watch that much more enjoyable.

Here is a behind the scenes of Julia Bourke's short film GLOSSY.

Can you imagine crafting 288 hands? That means shaping 1152 fingers!!! Yeah... I'll definitely be leaving the animation to her.

GLOSSY will be screening at MIAF in Panorama #4: Australian, on Friday 22 June, 6.30pm. Get tickets here. Go on, get cultured.

Getting The Book Invented

This little animated gem by Gavin Edwards was an entry into the Literary Platform's international competition which asked creative to animated Douglas Adams' audio clip recorded for his publisher tracking the evolution of the book.

The winner was named Eleanor Stokes with her animation. The scroll bit is pretty lolworthy.

Check out the Sourcery for the full story and more linkage concerning 'prophecies'. The Francis Ford Coppola one is particularly eerie/interesting.
