This Piano Plays Me by SeizureDemon This Piano Plays Me by SeizureDemon
Making up a song about Cooooraliiiine....

I can't even remember the last time an animated movie hit me so hard. Probably since Nightmare Before Christmas, and that was when I was 7 years old. And no it WASN'T directed by Tim Burton nor did he have anything to do with it. This is Henry Selick's vision. This film in every way is a masterpiece of animated brilliance! And do you know how hard and tedious stop motion animation is? Well...its very hard and tedious haha, more so than hand drawn, especially if your making a movie like Coraline.

I've been working on this for a while now, ever since I saw it after the 2nd time in theaters (total 3 times hell yea). I loved the Other Father scene with the They Might Be Giants song, think thats my favorite scene. I really wanted to experiment with it and I was inspired by Shane Prigmore's designs for the film, the whole lineless thing with textures. It was a long process but I'm alright with the final result.

I'm really glad this movie came along, gives me hope for the future of animation. If you haven't seen it, GO SEE IT!Gah, when's the DVD coming out!?

Also go check my blog for some Coraline sketches and goodies: [link]

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Nearly choked. Soooooooo funny!!!! That was one of my favorite scenes from the movie because I play piano, too. Just curious, but did anyone else think that Charlie and the Other Father's neck and chin looked like a leg and the beginning of a foot?

True! everyone believes it was directed from Tim Burton.
it wasn't.
and yes, i agree that it was unbelievably spectacular for a stop motion film.
it's my dream to direct dark stop motion musicals.

awesome job by the way!
love your style.

Every good stop motion film that comes out, every one thinks it's by Tim Burton. I find that hard to believe honestly...

I saw it 5 times (unfortunately, not in theaters). Pretty awesome stuff, and the picture is great.

I particularly liked in the movie that he's wearing MonkeyBone slippers.
From another film they did stop motion on and one that I think is under appreciated.
