I've been interested in animation since the late 1970s, mostly because of the BBC series "International Festival of Animation" (hosted by Jean Marsh of "Upstairs Downstairs" fame), and the very beginnings of computer animation. A couple of years ago, my son got interested in stop action animation, which I find fascinating, too.
My daughter just sent me a wonderful piece, "featuring photography by Eyal Landesman and music by Oren Lavie." It has a wonderfully surreal quality to it, with more than a dash of whimsy. Click the title entry to watch it.
