Production Stills: Funnest

We’ve been working on an exceptional, frankly fairly nuts, project for the past couple of months. I’m not going to say much at this stage, other than (1) it’s for 4th Estate, (2) it’s a short done entirely in stop-motion animation (3) yes, we have built 6 sections of a city made entirely out of books, and (4) it’s really, really good fun.

More details after the jump.

These are some production stills from a couple of sequences in the film for 4th Estate, which will be out early next year.

25th Estate - Ben
Working out the shots for the museum district. Things were simpler then.
