I recently came across the creations of this amazing artist, Amanda Louise Spayd
I absolutely love her strange and beautiful creatures. Highly decorative with fantastic eyes and teeth, the movie she's made using stop-motion animation is for me like a fantastic hybrid of Jan Svankmajer and Tim Burton. Dealing with the frailties of mortality and the passage of time, (and maybe even an underlying Bride of Frankenstein vibe?) with wonderfully detailed creations and sets, plus an emotive score, make this a charmingly disturbing and poignant small film. I found it utterly spellbinding. If you can, please take 5 mins out of your day to view it.
(So yes, I was rather taken with it.!)

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
