This stop-motion film by Kevin Parry is one of the coolest stop-motion films I’ve ever seen. Everything from the music to the tedious articulations of the characters is spot-on. Tim Burton called the film a “cross between 2001 [A Space Odyssey] and Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer,” and in some weird way I think he’s right.

The film explores greed and temptation and suggests that these vices consume you once you find them. What is most interesting is the very end when another spaceman guy comes out of his portal. I wonder if that block just flops around back and forth eating spacemen all day…

What’s this film mean to you?
