Featured in new Stop Motion Book!

But Milk is Important is featured in a new Italian book about Stop Motion by Stefano Bessoni!

It's a book full of illustrations and photos. Starting with "What is Stop Motion?", analyzes of the history and techniques before moving on to the step by step description accompanied by detailed photographs of the manufacture of a puppet, the set, animation and postproduction. And a presentation of some Stop Motion films that, if you have not already done so, you should definitely see!

Thank you JG Quintel!

Featured at Dragonframe !

You can now read about our production at Dragonframes official website, where the project is now featured! :)

"Delightfully disturbing, this is a studly student piece indeed. The trailer for this short from joint directors Anna Mantzaris and Eirik Bjørnsen, hailing from Volda University College in Norway, proves to be as much a mystery as it is a masterpiece. What is this film about? Is it a warmer and fuzzier Donnie Darko? Is it a crazy cute Kafka story? Is it a psychological mind bender or an ominous nutritional service announcement? The only thing that is certain is that it is beautifully lit, shot and art directed and is a piece of engagingly suspenseful storytelling. We can't wait until this endearingly dark dust bunny comes fully out of the closet."
