This type of animation has always intrigued me and, basic stop frame was the first type of animation we experimented with.
I have been researching at animators such as PES and Norman McLaren.
I had an experimental session using stop-frame animation to create this animation inspired by Norman McLaren to create this.
Both of these artists are phenomenal animators; however i have been more interested in the dark side of stop-frame animation, as it seems to break the rules of animation being a childrens media.
I found this short film created by Robert Morgan, called The Separation, in which has truly inspired me.
I love the dark and imaginative context of the animation and the smoothness in which it has been executed.
I find the detail of the characters and objects surrounding them amazing.
