It is a gorgeous piece of 2d animation that not only visually excited me but the tone and the music added so much to the story. The animation itself was astounding, the simplicity of the drawings that made the character so full of depth, the movements are just charming and I watched it over and over.
I found this on cartoonbrew.com and was instantly transfixed, it has a certain creative beauty. I have always admired sand art, but this is a new level. It shows animation skill at the same time as introducing a level of attractiveness that appeals to many.
Great little video from Yuval & Merav Nathan, Lose This Child was animated on an actual beach with real sand, by four animators including musician Guy Ben Shetrit.(cartoonbrew.com)
It has been a while since its release but I have only just got round to seeing it. It was definitely worth the wait, it is a fantastic film(no pun intended). I am a big fan of stop motion, but this took it to another level, it was established it upheld the romantic nature of stop motion at the same time as creating its very own style and attitude. The film itself is perhaps a little slow, but is easily forgiven due to the nature of the style and production.
These two animations to me are groundbreaking. Tim Burton, sinister as ever produced this stop motion in 1982 – over 25 years ago and it still resonates with me, it is completely timeless. The stop motion and voice work great together, the style of the animation is rich and cleverly portrayed through the characters facial expressions. Pure Genius.
This particular animation is fantastic, it on first glance is visually not up to scratch, but please if you have not heard of this guy then you should have. These animations are based on comic timing and accuracy in animation. I studied these animations for quite some time learning about timing and ensuring that the character you create gets the timing they deserve.
