There are not many cases that student films get nominated for an Oscar, but this British stop-motion animated short film, HEAD OVER HEELS made it happen. It written and directed by Timothy Reckart and produced by Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly. This short film shows a unique perspective of a married old couple’s life. The main characters, an old couple lives upside down from each other separated by gravity. Living in same house, yet they never communicate each other and lives separately. According to the website, DRAGONFRAME, the director Timothy mentions “I felt strongly that stop motion was the right medium…I wanted depth and dimension to the house, so that we could take advantage of the film’s unusual geography in planning our shots.” This film is featuring incredibly detailed stop-motion animation.
