My Life as a Zucchini

I just found this stop-motion film while shopping at Target. Think I may have to pick it up.

Aardman Early Man Movie

Director Nick Park is bad with another movie, Early Man by Aardman.
Looking forward to this film. I love the stuff that Aardman makes. Good stories, humor and lovable characters. 

Auntie Claus Stop-Motion Film begun a to film a stop-motion film based on the book with the same title. Unfortunately the film has been abandoned, but perhaps one day it will get picked back up. Either way, some awesome puppets were made and some really good animation. Worth a peek.

GhostGirl Stop-motion Book Trailer

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I just came across a beautify Animated Trailer for the books Ghostgirl. At first I assumed it was a trailer for a short film, but instead it is a short film for a book. Anyways, check it out.
Victoria Rose helped with creating this short

Fantastic Mr Fox 1:6 Doll Replica

If you are not familiar with the art talents of Scott Petterson, you really should check out his blog. Here he has recreated a 1:6 scale doll of the Fantastic Mr Fox. Beautiful doll, fantastic attention to detail. I cannot say enough to do justice to this piece.
