Stop-motion is one of the mediums that never fails to impress me. The sheer amount of time and effort put into making still images appear to move when combined is something that I certainly don’t have the patience for. But the folks over at Andersen M Studio certainly do as evidenced by the video above, created for the New Zealand Book Council. What they’ve done is animate a piece of Maurice Gee’s book Going West, creating a piece that’s both enthralling but also kinda’ creepy in the Nightmare Before Christmas kinda’ way. Just watch and see how crazy they got with the details, like the tumbleweeds and towns and every other little detail.
Thanks to KN reader Rikke for the tip!
