    Very cool animation style based on paper cutouts. Evidently, each frame is an added layer on top. It's based on another similar style called stratacut, in which a layer is taken away with each frame. Supposedly, stratacut was used in Peter Gabriel's video Big Time, although I think it was interspersed with generous helpings of traditional claymation.

    To me, the attention and precision involved in a project like this is mind-boggling. This is to say nothing of the talent. I can barely sketch a horrible kitty for my son.

    When I see stuff like this I used to get a punch in the stomach telling me I should/should have go/gone to art school and dove into to it. I have been interested in animation for a long time. But, when I watched that clip, I don't feel such a yank anymore! So I guess I don't care as much about silly dreams and desires! Wait...that's not a good thing.

    Thanks for the share.
