A Century of Stop-Motion Animation: From Melies to Aardman
The writing in this book is actually pretty bad, but the book was obviously put together with a lot of love. It contains many fascinating details about stop motion techniques Did you know that they used air bladders to animate the breathing of the characters in King Kong?
There are also some fun stories about the production of various movies. There is unsurprisingly a pretty heavy focus on Harryhausen and Willis O’Brien in this book.
I’d rather read a history with more attention paid to othe The writing in this book is actually pretty bad, but the book was obviously put together with a lot of love. I’d rather read a history with more attention paid to other artists Harryhausen is fun, but I think he gets a disproportionate amount of attention.
I found the book informative nonetheless. The book also mentions quite a few neat sounding movies I’d never heard of. My brother gave this hard cover edition to me as a gift.
It is the coolest! I’ll lose myself in it for hours.
I think it’s part two in a series but I’m not sure. This is melie awesome book to have on the coffee table at all times.
