PREVIEW: Tchaikovsky Short by Barry Purves

World-class stop motion animator Barry Purves is currently working on a short about Tchaikovsky that’ll debut later this year. The film’s cameraman Joe Clarke created this spellbinding time-lapse of Purves at work:

Whilst working on the film I shot this series of time-lapses with the help of students. Instead of just leaving the camera to click away at set intervals, we manually took a frame in synch with the frames Barry was taking as he animated, showing the puppet moving at his intended 25fps, almost!

The stills from the short that Joe has posted on his website are also mouth-watering. I’m eagerly anticipating this one.
