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.
