With my addiction to all things stop-motion growing by the hour, I am lucky enough to have friends, (enablers), who fuel my habit. A while back I opened my messages to find a link with the word ‘creepy’ written underneath. My editor had stumbled across something just plain menacing and thought of me immediately. Isn’t that sweet? (Ed: It's how we express love).
What was in the link was a curious and brilliantly imaginative short by one of the Czech Republics most celebrated animators and illustrators. For this month’s Movies in Motion we look at the work of Jiri Trnka with one of his last short films, Ruka.
