Hee hee, that was pretty funny [thumbsup]

Edit -- By the way... is Panic in the Village anything like Panic at the Disco?

So, I finally watched that...

_wow_

I've seen some pretty crazy anime in my time, and that trumps nearly all of it!

Meanwhile, with claymation on the brain, I've re-Googled Arson Sam. [Razz]

I like the way they take a wonderfully stupid central idea, that is making a stop motion film with models that can't move, and execute it with such complete commitment, and quite some sophistication and style. It just makes me laugh too, even after seeing it several times.

Actually, they give the impression that they can't move...but they either have clay doubles that /can/ move, or the originals can be altered as needed. If you watch the second one, the cowboy rides the horse, which would be quite impossible given the plank at the base. Also, the horse has a single leg move in one shot, though someone might be holding up a spare leg. I think the majority of the shots are done with immovable pieces simply to reduce production costs (much in the same way that anime will have many seconds of non-motion, and just use the monologue to keep the plot going).

Still, none of this detracts from the insanity of it! [Big Grin]
