Can’t Stop Watching This Paper Cutout Stop Motion

Written by stringbox

This clever super-short is one of my new favorite things. A prudent remark delivered by an endearing little paper cutout character I can quickly relate to. While I’m sure the video’s purpose may have largely been to explore this animation style and employ the always rewarding motion tracking technique, I just really like this style of character and mood. The small figure with a simple outlook, heavy accent, wild hair, and wide eyes (which could be equal parts caution and wonder) always clicks with me.

Also, I’m digging the style of director/woodworker Frank Ladner. I still need to check out Max Peril soon.
