…It’s Movie Monday: A Short Love Story In Stop Motion?

A Short Love Story In Stop Motion

Carlos Lascano’s A Short Love Story In Stop Motion is a beautiful example of what’s possible when a talented artist that has mastered a medium tells a story filled with emotion in just a few minutes.

A Short Love Story Detail

Though it’s hard to believe, most of this is not CGI, as the characters are made of wire and wood, then covered in paper, the clothing is paper, and the indoor scenarios are all made with paper and cardboard.

Says Carlos,

I wanted to achieve an organic look, away from the perfection found in computer drawing, so I used only real objects and hand-drawing that were later composed in After Effects.

…Food brands aren’t always as they appear?

Organic FoodsThey might try to hide behind healthy and family farm sounding names, but many/most of the organic foods that you buy are actually produced by some of the nation’s largest food processors.

…Java is a good soda flavor?

JavaPop

JavaPop is the nation’s first organic and fair trade certified coffee soda; a carbonated, non-dairy based, 100% natural coffee drink that’s “made from ingredients you can pronounce”. Though I’m skeptical about the taste of a coffee flavored soda, it sounds like it’s made of some good stuff, so I’d be interested to try it. Plus, they use recycled materials in all of their packaging, so you don’t have to worry about your drink downing the environment. How refreshing.
