not exactly timelapse and going back awhile... ok a long while i quite enjoyed the wizard of speed and time. had a lot of stop motion in it . which probably piqued my interest in stop motion then timelapse. perhaps some of you may have seen it.

Yes, a very cool movie. The stopmotion walking on the wall, walking in air and floating down the road holding the lady were great. Probably a lot more I don't remember because I haven't seen it in decades.

Also check out
Chronos, Baraka, Koyaniskatsi,and Private life of plants

after watching the short i'd say quirky ;) . the actual movie does have more of a story line and flows a bit better i think. going back 20 years or so i thought it was well done and i enjoyed it anyhow :D

Yes, the original was much longer with a story about the girl and an evil producer.

I loved this film at the time it was released. I was actually about to start film school and I found it very inspirational from an effects perspective. How things have changed !

Not sure if it was an American thing or if it was shown everywhere. There used to be a stopmotion series called "Gumby". Originally, I thought it was for kids, but i watched some again when I was in grad school. The stories were for kids, but some of the creative animation was awesome.

The train ran on just a few sections of track, which appeared ahead of the train and dis-appeared after the train had passed by. Cotton balls came out of the train's smoke stack and drifted towards the back while getting bigger and fluffier. Other amazing things happened that were not part of the story line, just really cool stuff the animators decided they could do with stopmotion.

Is Wallace and Grommit the Gumby of England?

Never in the whole history of Timescapes.org has there been a more inflammatory statement than this :o

Yeah, I am the bad guy.

Didn't mean to slam Gumby that way, but they are all made of clay, or Plasticine, or something.

And both had a subservient quadruped as a companion.

Just saying cool stuff happened in the background of many of those animations.

I can admit to having seen Gumby early in my life. I can also confirm that the term "Gumby" made its way into Australian vernacular as a derogatory term. Make of that what you will. Certainly it never inspired me in the art of animation. It was just there, like Captain Pugwash with his creepy 3D human mouth moving in a 2D face...

Wallace and Gromit are the distilled essence of Northern English humour, the saviours of the Wensleydale cheese makers, children of one of the 1958 Club's most distinguished members and a fine tribute to what mankind can achieve with little more than plasticine and a warped mind.
