Over the hills and far away.

"paper horse stop motion animation test"

The stream appears, ripped from a white sheet of paper, ripples appear and move down the stream as a horse gallops across the paper and out of shot. Grass appears as the horse gallops across again giving the illusion of distance traveled.
Although this is a short film it works beautifully. I like the use of lighting to show shadows and I think that the music adds to the feeling of movement.
A simple idea but the intricately cut-out models makes this a very successful test.
Also effective, is that the tools are kept in shot, whether intentionally or not.
I enjoyed this immensely and would have liked to have seen more.
