I love animation and independent cinema.
I don't get to share my passion with too many people. This blog is a forum for me to share my passion with all you that feel the same way. There is so much happening in the world of cinema, so here is a place for you and me to come to escape and delve into our own little worlds of art in motion.

This series reminds me very much of Terry Gilliam’s Monty Python Animations. Some fun art for the day.

Marilyn Myller

by Parabella Animation Studio

A great short stop motion animation made with styrofoam and long light exposure. It is the follow up project of the studio that made The Eagleman Stag. Although the two shorts use the same techniques, the stories are very different. The end to Marilyn has a bit of the tongue and check humor at the very end, but I don’t think it fits well with the rest of the tone of the film. Visual stunning, good ideas, but lacks a little bit of cohesiveness.  A great short that is definitely worth watching and sharing.
