Today's post is a break from the mysteries of The Box of Letters to bring you the latest from Natalie's amazing adventure in making her first stop motion claymation short movie!
Thanks to the generous help and guidance of our friends Peter and Dru who came over and gave us a wonderful tutorial in how to put this all together and make it go, Natalie's "dream" is now available to share with you all here.
She calls it: "The Night Before Holloween"
Not to be outdone, Diego came up with his own short and punchy piece of inspired film combining his favorite Lego toy with claymation, helped out with a soundtrack by his sister!
Of course it looked like so much fun the old man had to get into the act, bringing my own recent traumatic experiences metaphorically to life in clay!
Elsa got the bug too and you can expect that she will be coming out with something amazing soon on her own blog: imagine when her dolls and other creations come to life and her verdant world of art spills over into stop motion imagery!
To paraphrase: the family that clays together, stays together!
