It's been over seven years in the making. Julie Pitts and Miles Blow are now trying to complete the last few minutes of their feature film.
The story behind this film is typical of a stop motion project. Julie and Miles had to pack up their studio and move it in the middle of production. They've endured computer changes as technology progressed. Dust storms, crazy neighbors with toxic chemicals leeching in their work space, floods....the list goes on and on.
That is what makes this film so amazing because it is a lesson in endurance. You have a goal, you stick with it and in the end you win!....or something like that.
Wombok Forest appears to be a film about circus workers. That is about all I can figure out as over the many pages of the site documenting the film, no story outline can be found. There are lots and lots of pictures, behind the scenes shots, time lapse of the shooting process and more. So I think everyone will be surprised when they see the final film. Here is a preview of what to expect:
The official site is not high tech and flashy but navigation is easy and straight forward. Here is their official page and watch some videos on their official YouTube channel here. There are even a few how-to videos on making ball and socket joints that show one way of building them. So be prepared to learn a thing or two!
