Feats of Clay

A GRAND DAY OUT

  • Description
  • brings to audiences the best in contemporary clay animated

    films of the last 20 years. This landmark collection celebrates the

    I 00th anniversary of stop motion filmmaking, the earliest form of

    animation. Produced one frame at a time, and sometimes taking

    years to complete, these articulated visions in clay offer a sensory

    experience for both the animator and the audience.

    Several of the films in FEATS OF CLAY have either been

    nominated or have won the Academy Award for best animated

    short. From the humorous to the dramatic, each film exemplifies

    how far the medium of clay animation has advanced since its

    humble beginnings.
