ahh…. completely enthralled by the creations people can come up with with paper! And since the memories of Stop motion animation class and all the work that went into making them are still fresh from last semester…

Andersen M Studio’s paper stop-motions have amazed me!

 

“Going West” has won quite a few awards since being released:

 

and another animation by the same studios, one about Harry Potter *squeals*, it is not as fantastic animation wise but… it is HARRY POTTER. what’s not to like!

Plato.

the new semester has started and this time round, i am taking animation history as a module!

after one semester of making my own stop-motion animations, i have really learnt how work goes into a good story and execution! so yes, i think i appreciate animations more.

our lecturer said something interesting last night, he said that good animations are those that hold without any dialogue. He was referring to those blockbuster animated films by the big companies like Dreamworks and Pixar nowadays which makes use of dialogue heavily, to bring the entertainment value. i have never thought of that before.

 

and with that. i present you with what i think my lecturer would approve of:

“Plato” by Léonard Cohen (i am wondering why Plato but i think i got an inkling why.)

 

somehow everyone likes an animation with an unusual plot involving the character being able to mess around with its own surroundings like:

“the Tantilizing Fly”, 1919 by Max Fleischer

a classic animated film but the jokes haven’t grown old yet.
