Beautiful Stop Motion
I think this is a really elegant and lovely pice of stop motion animation. It tells a story through such an easy method of lying on a bed. It plays with perspective by making it look like she sis standing up where she is actually laying down. It creates a distorted and quite awkward movement. The movie integrates all sorts of little attributes during her day, such as a scarf being blown round her neck to keep her warm.
This is a perfect example where stop motion works well whereas taken in real time this idea would not look the same. Because separate images have been taken for every frame the set is able to move as if by magic every picture.
