Animation on Tor.com: "The Sandman" and "Sebastien"


This week, a nightmare and a daydream:

The Sandman: A truly scary bedtime story. Great expressionist backgrounds and lighting. I’d say it’s Tim Burton-esque but it was made before Nightmare Before Christmas. (9 minutes)

S├ębastien: Flights of fancy are contagious. From the amazing french animation school Gobelins. (1.50 minutes)

Hey Irene, "The Sandman" has to be one of my favorite stop motion shorts. Thanks for posting it!

If you haven't already, you should check out "The Periwig Maker", another all time favorite of mine.

Wow! those look great! I love anything that is Tim Burtonesque. I still need to see Coraline! Another great animation film is Mirror Mask, one of my all time favorites.
