I can’t wait to see this short film. I’m trying really hard to find a place where I can see it complete.

The bigger picture by Daisy Jacobs is a short film that combines, big painting characters, stop motion and paper mache.

Daisy Jacobs explains in the video that I posted here how it was made.

She painted this big characters and their arms are 3D coming out of the wall and giving the idea of real scene.

As well all the elements are made in paper mache, which in my opinion is a great touch, they look real but they are not.

This stop motion animation took her 7 months to finish but it was worthy as it won many many awards, including 2 Baftas and a nomination for the Oscars 2015.

I’m sure we will hear more about this talented film maker soon.

Ronai David, Damien Mortini and Aurelien Gantier put together Christmas Experiments, a digital advent calendar that reveals a new web-based treat every day throughout December. Each one is the product of a different developer.

My favourite is Finding Home by Michael Anthony, which features a little ball of light that travels into amazing landscapes that change colours and time, going through mountains and space and then into a galaxy, it is pretty awesome!

A friend recommended this video to me and I can’t believe it is made by Stop Motion. The main material used is foam, he carved the characters out of it.
It is wonderful.
The story is fab but the characters and the animation are mind blowing. It won a 2011 BAFTA award for Best Short Animation. Enjoy the rare world of Mikey Please.

You can see how it was made in the following video:

Sorry, I had a mental week and have been extremely busy with an art opening in London where I was exhibiting, as well as handing in my final MA paper.
But I’m back.

I discovered this gold girl. She loves stop motion and the videos she makes are wonderful. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen something with such a simple idea but so effective. Her name is Kirsten Lepore and she makes mini stop motion videos which I love.
This girl is Something. With a capital S. Check her out. Below are two of her films, one called Bottle and the other called Sweet Dreams. Isn´t she amazing?
