Faery Cakes with Baba Ganushka

The little bit of stop animation was made by Nick Hilligoss for StopMoShorts, based on some given keywords: Box, Feather, Hate, Surprise, Bitter, Tear.

Baba Yaga is the witch of Russian folktales. This is her sister Baba Gana, or Ganushka to family and friends. And she’s making some treats (or threats?) for some flying faeries…

The short “was shot on a Nikon D70 and reduced to Hi Def, then reduced to PAL 16:9 for editing. Baba and Ivan have foam latex heads, liquid latex buildup hands, and cushion foam bodies. I decided to go with a less realistic look and kept the eyes simple, just beads with black dots. The faery creatures are liquid latex built up over the wire, with wings cut from the clear plastic lid of a takeaway container and glued to wire with epoxy.”

Piccolo pezzo di stop motion realizzato da Nick Hilligoss per StopMoShorts, in base a delle parole chiave: scatola, piuma, odio, sorpresa, amaro, rottura.

Baba Yaga è la strega delle fiabe russe. Questa è sua sorella Baba Gana, o Ganushka per amici e parenti. E sta preparando dei dolcetti (o scherzetti?) per gli esseri fatati.

Il corto “è stato girato con una Nikon D70 e ridotto prima in Hi Def, poi in PAL 16:9 per il montaggio. Baba ed Ivan hanno teste in schiuma di lattice, mani in lattice liquido e schiuma da imballaggio. Ho deciso per un aspetto meno realistico e lasciato gli occhi come semplici perline con un puntino nero. I folletti sono in lattice liquido costruito su filo, con le ali ritagliate dai coperchi di plastica del contenitore del takeaway e attaccate al cavo con della resina.”
