" From the charm of Gumby, to the wild adventures of Wallace and Gromit, through the zaniness of Jack Skelington in The Nightmare before Christmas, we have all fallen under the magical spell of characters brought to life by stop-motion animation! Laboriously created by artists moving puppets in tiny increments while recording one image at a time, each short sequence can represent many hours of painstaking attention to detail. Time consuming? Definitely! But the result can be mesmerizing and possess near universal appeal.
Frequently used in television and feature films, stop-motion animation has recently experienced a resurgence. Despite this, getting their work screened can still be a huge struggle for many artists. This is why we have decided to celebrate and encourage the efforts and talent of the many people working in this unique art form. "
