That was amazing. How is this done Ron? Stop motion or 3D or something else?
All stop motion, some CG for the falling snow, but that's it.
If those characters are like puppets or dolls, how are they moving their eyeballs around?
Just like dolls, move them one millimeter at a time, snap a photo, move them again, snap a photo, very subtle movenets just mean very little spacing between each frame, the eyeball is lose and movable with the the "doll's" head in the socket, wires, joints, aramteurs for the body that allow animators to move the puppet slightly and take consecutive photos of each new pose, the same for facial animation.
It won many awards at Annecy (the biggest animation festival there is) and rightfully so, very ambitious, large sets, 20 minutes in length, and sometimes some very technically-difficult character animation.
