Have you seen Coraline? I saw it a few weeks ago and boy-oh-boy does a movie like that get the creative juices flowing. I really feel like I need to see it again (several times!) to appreciate all of the crafty goodness within.
After the movie, I said to Bill, "I'm so used to Computer Generated Imagery, I kept having to remind myself that everything was real..." He said, "Wait. That wasn't CGI?" Hee hee. Exactly! Everything in that movie is handmade. Wow.
If you have not already seen them, you should watch the videos at the Coraline site -- particularly where they are making their crafty stuff. The miniature knitter is astounding:
(By the way -- that's a Blog First for us. We've never embedded a video before. Go, us: embracing technology of the 21st century!)
I love this photo, showing the cherry blossoms made from pink popcorn. Nothing hammers home the "real"-ness of the set like seeing a full grown man huddled in the tiny forest:
Of course, the fact that it was in 3D was also pretty slick.
Have you seen it? If so, what did you think? (If not, get to the theatre, girlfriend!)
PS - Still photo from the Coraline site.
