Going West, Paper Boy, Moving Paper cut animation film festival


Today's another day for videos! If you love pop-up books, you'll adore the stop-frame animation Going West, produced by Andersen M Studio for the New Zealand Book Council, a non-profit organization that promotes the love of books and reading in the country.

Books come to life in this short film, which features Maurice Gee's classic New Zealand novel Going West. It has won several awards including the 2010 Museum's Choice grand prize at Moving Paper, an international film festival of cut paper animation organized by New York’s Museum of Arts and Design.

This short film, Paper Boy, was the Moving Paper grand prize winner of the People's Choice award. It was made by composer/musician Ehran Elisha and animator/visual artist Ian Klapper.

This is what I mean about how there are millions of choices on the internet and when you find one, you just gotta share it! Great find. I love creativity and innovative art concepts! There is a guy who uses trash for art medium, a gal who uses junk mail for collages, a woman who takes 2 liter bottles and teaches people in Africa how to make them into jewelry. Now I see a guy who cuts up a book and makes a story! Wow!
