Ania Leszczynska from the Edinburgh College of Art is creating a very beautiful cut-out stop motion piece previously called "Etude"
The film now has a new name called "An Interrupted Story" and is Anias degree film project. The visuals are very rich with dramatic lighting and a lot of emotion. The difference between this film and other cut-out animations that you may have seen are the way some facial features are literally painted on the glass.
Sarah Keeling took some behind the scenes video and posted it up on Vimeo which you can watch below.
You can see how they stacked several layers of glass on black painted tubes, lighting everything from the sides and top of the glass to cast more dramatic shadows. The black paint prevents light from bouncing off of the tubes to stop possible glare into the camera.
As a side note, Ania is originally from Poland, much like Władysław Starewicz whos parents were both Polish. You can see her official blog online here, and check out her Vimeo account page located here.
