Stop-motion will remain one of the most beautiful methods of story telling. I think what makes it stand out so much is the fact that these characters we see on the screen, exist. Though every character we see exists you have to stop and think, when the film is live action and the actor steps off the set they’re no longer that character. They’re that actor again, plain and simple. And with 2D and CG animation the character doesn’t go beyond being more than just a picture or a rendering inside the computer. But with stop-motion, you see, they exist. The character is there just about forever. They existed and do exist and their whole world somehow exists. It’s just truly remarkable.
