At the movies

I spent both Saturday and Sunday afternoons at The National Film and Sound Archives' Arc cinema, escaping heat while watching fabulously inspirational architecture movies from their Utopian cinema: concrete cinema series.

On Sunday I arrived early so took the opportunity to have a wander around their gallery, having realised I hadn't been in it for years. Gotye's Fractured Heart sculpture kept me entranced for quite some time, and when I finally tore myself away I turned the corner and found this:

Yep, it seems there has been a Tegan the Vegan display on at The National Film and Sound Archive for about six months
AND I HAD NOT NOTICED.
Shame on me. Shame. Stop motion animation, created just across the border. No excuses at all.
(If you're interested, you can watch the trailer on You Tube
and buy access to the full, 13 minute film on Fillim for $US4.99.)
The production company's website has some interesting behind the scenes pictures of the set, which is mainly in 1/5 scale (with 1/25 used for outside scenes)
(Including info on how they created the house).
And some fascinating behind-the-scenes production information including a time-lapse video of them animating.

I was there the weekend before. Had to talk myself I to trying the Factured Heart installation and ended up loving it. And the Tegan the Vegan section was excellent.

6 months? It took you 6 months? Tsh, the shame ;0)
I love stop motion animation. Very cool that they have some of the sets on display.
