Stop Motion Animation - Movie Night!

Movie night! First up is Coraline

This time of the year gets crazy!  So let's watch stop motion movies until the new year. 

Call a movie and a date to secure the movie of your choice. I'd like to mix up the studios/directors so we don't just watch say, Tim Burton or Aardman Animations, as much as we may love them. I've compiled a list of studios and links to trailers. Choose wisely, otherwise, Chrissy will make the call.

Movie list:

Tim Burton: Nightmare Before ChristmasCorpse BrideFrankenweenie

Rankin/Bass: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) - Rankin/Bass did other stop motion films/tv specials, but who cares. One clearly stands out among the rest and tis the season.

Aardman Animations - Wallace and Gromit, The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Chicken Run 

Wes Anderson: Fantastic Mr. Fox

Czech Stopmotion: Toys in the Attic (2012),  Jan Švankmajer's Alice (1988) - Surreal and extremely weird.

Other: Shisha no Sho (Book of the Dead)Mary and Max trailer is not child friendly

SHORTS- There are far more stop motion shorts. Watching shorts instead of a movie is an option.

Not really mixing it up: James and the Giant Peach (same director as Coraline), ParaNorman (Laika is the same studio as Coraline)

We can still talk about character and further our investigations into the technical aspects.

The current plan is 30 seconds short with a steampunk theme. We have a lot to learn (armatures, cameras, programs, oh my) but before we get to carried away- we need our story and characters.
