PROPS!

big ups to mike brent at dark matters for receiving the 9th coraline "mystery box". i guess that's the term they have been given... i've known mike for a few years as the one of most prolific posters on the stopmotionanimation.com message boards. he's always got something to say, and it is almost always worth a read. to say mike is a fan of stop motion would be a laughable understatement. i can't think of a more dedicated fan of the medium. he is such natural a choice to get something like this that i'm almost surprised he DID. i'm sure he will do some in depth reporting on this package over the next few days. i think he's already planning to chop up one of the arms he got to see what's inside...

I'm still all aglow. Oh, and I pretty much knew... about slicing up that arm... it was right now or never, so I took a deep breath and just did it.

Phil Knight would approve I think.

I'm looking forward to seeing the REAL stuff too, the puppets move with such grace in Coraline, I was surprised any wire was used at all. Bow down to the masterful animators!
