Stop Motion: The Making Of

A hilarious animation that parodies animation.
5/5

Review

Written, directed and animated by Kessiah Arthur, ‘Stop Motion: The Making Of’ is a satirical animation that pokes fun at itself, the craft of animation and the general filmmaking industry. The witty film is constructed like a blooper-reel and explores the on-set blunders with Steve – the charming test dummy. The stop-motion film is a fascinating watch and is certain to bring a few belly-laughs. The film doesn’t take itself too seriously, which only aids the highly spirited tone.

Set on a miniature green-screen platform, the 2-minute film opens with a series of production errors whilst capturing the miniature test dummy, Steve (voiced by George Tsaknis). The film acts as a parody to industry scene outtakes and gives a human-like personality to an otherwise lifeless inanimate object.

High praise to Kessiah Arthur. Her bizarre animation is thoroughly entertaining and is crafted with awe-inspiring intricacy. The audience will likely fall for the hilarious charms of Steve – a commendable performance by George Tsaknis. Despite having a non-linear narrative and scrambled structure, the film is highly engaging and relies on characterization alone to captivate the audience. Post-production, sound and music are of a decent quality. A unique animation. Kessiah Arthur is an animator to keep-an-eye-on. Highly recommended.
