Sorry for my prolonged absence. I have some new art I need to put up, but I haven't had the time lately, however I do have lots of new pieces I need to post and share. :) Not sure when I'll be able to get them up though, so in the meantime, I thought I would post about the new movie, Coraline, coming out. I believe it's based off a children's book, however I haven't done much research on it yet, so I'm not really sure. I have found the movie website and I have to say, it's one of the best I've seen in a while. It's perfect for children and those young pre-teens (and even those kid-at-heart adults like myself!). There are all sorts of things to do there. You can visit Coraline's world, visit her neighbors, watch the trailer and even create your own flower and post it to your facebook or myspace page, or even email it to your friends and family. The movie is stop-motion with clay animated figures, which I have always loved. I can only imagine the patience the people who made that movie have. There aren't too many stop motion movies out there right now, which makes them all the better in my opinion, since we get to see how those movies grow and develop. I especially love watching the behind the scene footages. The website actually has some of those you can watch as well. It's quite fascinating to see how Coraline's world is made and how all of her clothing and facial expressions are created. Again, the patience those people have to make those things astounds me.
Anyway, I haven't seen the movie yet, but hope to in the very near future, which is why I have titled this entry my 'pre-review'. Hopefully once I see it, I can get back on here and let you know my full review. :) Until then, I would definately recommend checking out their website. It does take it a few minutes to load, so you may have to wait. But believe me, the wait is definately worth it. ;)
Oh, and Happy Late Valentine's Day!
