Stop motion animation has fascinated me since I was a kid. I remember some of my favorite things to watch on TV were short stopmotion clips. The stories were super simple, usually with no words and I loved them. Unlike most comercialized cartoons these days, those had the beauty of being a trampolin for imagination.
I tried to find some of those short animations, but came to a dead end. If anyone remembers them or can find them, let me know :)
I love it because of the amount of patience and creativity one has to have to make something like this work.
P.S.: I'll try it properly one day... when I have a tripod. [day-dreaming mode]
