My Amazing Floating Mom

July 12th, 2006

Thanks to my inability to participate in any type of exercising activity, I've had all kinds of down time to kill. But after a while...a very LONG while...Books, TV, or Computer are just not enough. I was forced to look for amusement elsewhere, and I found it in the world of Stop Motion Animation. I watched Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride" recently and was completely enthralled by the effect stop motion animation and claymation has on the mood of the movie. The same thing can be said about movies including, but not limited to:

The Nightmare Before Christmas
James and the Giant Peach
Chicken Run
Wallace and Gromit

Heck...Stop Motion animation was even used as far back as 1933 in the original King Kong. So I thought, "If people were doing in 1933, what's stopping me from doing it in 2006?" I whipped out my digital camera and proceeded to experiment with stop motion animation.

Without further ado, here is the result of a few hours of hasty work.

dude. fucking crazy
I made a lego stop motion reinactment of the Battle of Hastings for World History class in High School. It was cool. Though we had to change a few of the facts. The main dude got his head chopped off instead of the whole "arrow in the eye" catastrophe. and there was a fortress instead of an open field. but it was cool.
