‘Anomalisa’ and stop motion animation for adults


The renowned filmmaker Charlie Kaufman brings the latest example of animated films specifically for adults. This is Anomalisa .

If while we were aware that animated film had conquered href=”http://hipertextual.com/2015/06/9-cortometrajes-de-animacion-recomendados” of age thanks to delicious animated short films and those magnificent href=”http://hipertextual.com/tag/pixar” Pixar and DreamWorks films whose scripts could be it enjoyed by adults as much as for the kids, it’s time to note that audience that shift also occurred towards the development of adult animated movies. And his latest exponent is Anomalisa (2015), made with the beloved stop motion

Stop motion. Exciting static objects

This technique is based on to convince the viewer that includes inanimate objects moving on screen ; filmmakers manipulate objects, modify and change position every time they go to take a shot, and the assembly of these successive stills guarantees the illusion of movement . Such objects can be toys from plasticine (claymation) or other materials, paper cuts, drawings on sand and chalk walls and walls and so on. There are few films in stop motion to tell a story only adults can understand and fit entirely

moviegoers worldwide recall a landmark of stop motion animation and wonderful the Nightmare Before Christmas (Henry Selick, 1993), and others such as dreary Corpse Bride ( href=”http://hipertextual.com/tag/tim-burton” Tim Burton and Mike Johnson, 2005), funny Wallace & Gromit: the Curse of the Were-Rabbit (Nick Park and Steve Box, 2005), the correct Fantastic Mr. Fox ( Wes Anderson, 2009) and imaginative Coraline (Selick, 2009) and is likely to end up remembering Le Petit Prince (Mark Osborne, 2015).

However, we found few films in which you have used this technique to tell a story that only adults can understand and fit at all. And really worth seeing, just I remember Mary and Max (Adam Elliot, 2009) , an eccentric and touching story about the correspondence of years between an Australian and a New York-aged girl with Asperger syndrome, which are counted and we have the troubles of his every day in clay animation. But now comes Anomalisa

‘Anomalisa’. Find somebody else

As he did Tim Burton for the realization Corpse Bride shaking hands with Mike Johnson, respected Charlie Kaufman partnered with Duke Johnson to run Anomalisa and the second is responsible for ensuring all technique of stop motion , since that comes from that world even though his first short film, the curious Marrying God (2006), is live-action, all other things knows she is almost completely animated films, such as Beforel Orel: Trust (2012), a satirical short inclement serving prequel to the series starring the boy regards the title: moral Orel (Dino Stamatopoulos, 2005-2008); or two episodes of the parodic Mary Shelley’s Frankenhole (Stamatopoulos 2010-2012).

Kaufman, listed as responsible for the history of an episode of Moral Orel and had only directed the infinite game of mirrors that is vital inabarcable Synecdoche, New York (2008) signs the script for Anomalisa with Dan Harmon, the show runner of Community (2010-2015) , who knew Johnson for taking part behind the scenes in two episodes of this series. Charlie Kaufman is known for its unusual scripts, where surrealism seeps into the dramatic adventures of characters who are not going through its best

But Kaufman is best known precisely for its unusual scripts and well armed, in which surrealism seeps into the dramatic adventures of characters who are not going through their best, and sometimes even the swallows. His are the scripts of the deranged Being John Malkovich (Spike Jonze, 1999) and Human Nature (Michel Gondry, 2001), personal Adaptation (Jonze, 2002), Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (George Clooney, 2002) and the brilliant Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Gondry, 2004), which is the best it has to his credit so far, and most complex next with Synecdoche, New York , whose script also belongs to him.

Anomalisa , the Association Los Angeles film Critics considered the best animated film of the year and won the Grand Jury Prize at the last Festival Venice, Kaufman narrative concerns are articulated with Johnson distinguished work in animation. The script shows the vital frustration of an emotionally inept man, and at maturity, with both hands grab his last chance to feel better about yourself; and so see huge similarities between this film Michael Stone and Caden Cotard ( Philip Seymour Hoffman ) Synecdoche, New York . the expressiveness and movement of stop motion animation ‘Anomalisa’ are, perhaps, the most achieved so far

Michael confronts the surreal, both in sleep and wakefulness, and the strange situations that lack little to be as usual in Kaufman’s scripts for specific elements that leave the world and dominate these meetings, perhaps fleeting, in which one wonders where some people have gone so rare and even eventually leads. And thus it will probably meets a very specific quirky twist on some comic moments courtesy of Harmon .

the expressiveness and movement of stop motion animation in which Johnson has prepared for this film are perhaps the most accomplished in the art so far, with a great detail in physical recreation of the human environment ; and visual planning and framing of both directors are so timely that could have been those of a normal production, with actors of flesh and blood. However, this leads to the question of what justifies tell the story of Michael with animation. ‘Anomalisa’ animation is because his great metaphor may seem too grotesque or ridiculous with actors of flesh and blood

and the answer is a metaphor for the entire film, which used to show dominant mediocrity that Michael sees around him and to the surprise that names the film , the execution may seem too bizarre and even ludicrous with real actors, which is precisely what is sought in certain scenes of Being John Malkovich and has no place here. On the one hand, it is the most ingenious, and on the other, is too small due to poor development of their abilities and their own circumstances. But there is no reason for all self-respecting film buff is tackled with the latest extravaganza Charlie Kaufman; a pleasure to see Anomalisa .
