last night when i got home i flipped around the tv looking for something to zone out to for a bit. i settled on the hbo on demand channel and decided to check out the 13 minute ‘behind the scenes’ trailer for the 3D stop-motion movie ‘coraline‘. i think my jaw is still somewhere on the floor.
yesterday we talked about handmade nation and coraline is truly a handmade design-lover’s movie. i found myself smiling like a kid at the screen as i watched them create literally every detail you see on screen by hand. from character frames to tiny silk knitted sweaters (take take 6 weeks to 6 months to knit in miniature) to blooming flowers that use rubber dog toys as their source of movement- it was 13 minutes of sheer handmade heaven.
if you haven’t pre-bought your ticket yet, i definitely suggest picking one up- it looks like this film will truly be a feast for the eyes. click here for more information. [if you can’t play videos with sound at work the clip above is just as enjoyable without the sound]
ps: i am SO jealous
