stop motion

I've always been a fan of stop motion films, probably starting with the Wallace & Gromit movies, with a shout-out to Mr. Bill ("oh nooooo!") and it was awesome watching Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr. Fox with the voices of George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, among others.

And this is why I was so thrilled and impressed with the following short film, Out of a Forest by Tobias Gundorff Boesen, a student at The Animation Workshop. Filmed in the forests of Denmark, mostly at night and placed to the music of The National's "Slow Show," this five minute bachelorfilm is heartwarming, somber, eerie and cheery all at the same time. Enjoy.
