Amazing artistry and engineering inside those little puppets. They have all these tiny gears in their heads so they can be made to do different expressions with a turn of a screw.
Yes the DVD extras put a whole new perspective on stop-motion film for me. I knew it was an intense process but I had NO idea the scope of it until I watched the behind the scenes footage and interviews. It is utterly amazing. I don't know if I would have the patience for something as tedious as that! The end result is nothing short of amazing though.
I am most excited about Burton's involvement in the film. I was thrilled to hear he was taking the reigns on writing, directing and producing. Music to my ears. Burton has a unique touch all his own (which you can see in his works when he was the main creative brain)...I love the edgy, almost unfinished look he gives his art. It fascinates me.
