Stop-Motion Animation

Stop-motion animation has graced the silver screen since the late 1800's and its tradition is continued today encompassing all genres and age-groups. The meticulous and time intensive craft is celebrated this week from well-known hits like "The Nightmare Before Christmas" to lesser-known endeavors like the Pittsburgh Premier of "My Life as a Zucchini.""
