Feature Films : Contemporary Stop-Motion Auteur Cinema


Contemporary Stop-Motion Auteur CinemaThe very dawn of cinema is rooted in the fantastic, from Méliès’ Le Voyage Dans La Lune (1902) to Edison’s Frankenstein (1910), the painstaking methods of stop-motion animation developed in unison alongside the 7th art as a means to create elements that do not exist in nature. Now mostly abandoned in favour of cold, computer generated creations, the old-school art of stop-motion is being kept alive and vital almost exclusively by obsessive auteurs who use the form to bring life to their deepest personal visions in the most hands-on manor in which one can possibly make a film. For our 10th anniversary, we felt compelled to organize a small salute to several of the most intriguing contemporary stop-motion filmmakers working today. - Mitch Davis
