Sunday at Stop-Mo!

Hello readers,
This is my second day at the stop motion film festival! Let's begin!

The first event that I went to was Professionals 1 screening! My favorites from this event were Blue Eyes in Harbor Tale (For it's great use of live-action with stop motion), Igam Ogam 2 (It's so funny and cute. Say no more!), and On the other side of the woods (A weird but interesting rendering to Little red riding hood without being violent).

My tops from this event were Goodbye Mister De Vries, Le coeur du tailleur, and Ain't No Fish!

After that, I headed to the screening Professionals 2/Awards Ceremony! My favorite's from the event were Padre (For being quite scary and intense, and for it's 3D like environment) and The Uncluded - Organs (for one of the funniest music videos I've seen all year!)

My favorites were Anatole's little Saucepan (For it's relatable story and great animation), Munya and me (For it's great character design and situations), Koyaa - Flower (For it's awesome set design.), Mr Plastimime (For it's inspirational story and characters), and Impostor (For it's funny and humorous journey off crazy proportions!)

Followed up from this event, there was the awards ceremony! I will now announce the winners of the Stop Motion Festival 2014!
