Theme Month! October 2022: Stop-Motion Animation

Well, I hope you enjoyed the month of stop-motion animation! I know I did.

We opened strongly with The Teddy Bears (1907), a political satire mocking the trigger-happy tendencies of Theodore Roosevelt. We followed up with the brilliant and spooky horror-comedy The Haunted Hotel (1907), a groundbreaking and influential special effects extravaganza. Next, R.F.D. 10,000 B.C. (1917), a comedy from special effects legend Willis O’Brien. Finally, we closed with Scullion’s Dream (1908), a twisted, hand-chopping fantasy from Segundo de Chomon.

The visually rich world of “Madame Tutli-Putli”

I hope you will also check out some of my previous stop-motion coverage in films like Madame Tutli-Putli (2007), The Lost World (1925), and Princess Nicotine (1908).
