I can't remember how or where I came upon this video. I am sure it was in some other blog post, in my google reader, way back when. I have had it bookmarked forever and a day so I finally want to share it here, with you. Prepare to have your mind blown because it is BEAUTIFUL and MAGICAL!!
I LOVE stop motion! And claymation too but that's another post! I was so delighted to see Mr. Yen's papercuts in this video. Notice the whale. I have had Mr. Yen's Etsy sight tagged as a favorite for a long, long time. But I've not had the opportunity to purchase a whimsical piece from him yet.
My current absolute favorite full-length stop motion film is Fantastic Mr. Fox. J'adore everything about it! The featured voices, Wes Anderson, the animals! I will have to find the HBO "making of" video to show you. It's so great. I digress....
Lost Things is a short 2 minute stop motion film. It was written and directed by Angela Kohler and Ithyle Griffiths. And features Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy.
So much about this video thrills and delights me. The mood, the strangeness, the objects, the magic, the hole, the things. Its ALL so appealing to me. I could watch it over and over. Well, I do watch it over and over! Share it with your kids! They will find it fascinating!
Here's to a lovely little weekend!
