Stop motion animators employ many different techniques, materials and styles to create the props, backgrounds and characters for their unique three dimensional films.
Some people make latex or silicone puppets for their films, others use paper, found objects, or wet clay to create their piece, but animator and director Mikey Please of Parabella Animation Studio used a rarely utilized material to create his latest short- Styrofoam.
Mikey combines neatly sculpted Styrofoam models by the hundreds and long-exposure lighting to tell the story of Marilyn Myller- a girl who is both creator and destroyer.
It took Mikey and his partner Dan Ojari over a year to create this mesmerizing short, but it will only take you six minutes to take this animated trip through the mind of a young artist.
