Slice of Life: The Writers!

(This is part of the Slice of Life project)

I finally found some time yesterday morning to begin creating a stop-motion movie series using some little Writer figures that I got in the mail a few weeks ago. It’s a collection of writers — Shakespeare, Woolf, Poe, etc — and they are the perfect size for stop-motion movies.

I spent about 90 minutes on it — I can get things started pretty fast these days — from start to finish, so it is a bit rough-edged. But I liked the concept of these writers finding the XO computer and watching it write for them.

So, here, I present: The Writers!

Peace (in movies),

  1. This cracked me up! Very fun. I”m a total fan of stop-motion, having taken one too many art classes and owning every Wallace and Grommit film that there is (Wrong Trousers is a personal favorite).

    Do you show this to your class, or are you getting set up to do a longer bit with (drumroll please) *The Writers!*? Loved it!


  2. Excellent! When you first mentioned the figures, I thought maybe you meant those fun finger puppets (someone just gave me Zora Neale Hursten!), but I love these little guys. I may have to order a set!
