Charming stop-motion short 'Fashionably Late'

If the smooth and shiny perfection of contemporary CG animation leaves you cold, here's the perfect antidote.

Reminiscent of the BBC children's programmes of 1960s and 1970s, this short film by artist duo Lisa Graham (opens in new tab) and Denis Mallon (opens in new tab) uses stop-motion animation and starkly cut-out figures to tell a story about family, fashion, and fatality.

Innovative approach

Straddling the line between art and animation, the short was premiered at the Edinburgh Colony Of Artists Exhibition (opens in new tab) this weekend.

The pair also exhibited their sets, character models, props, costumes, and answered questions about what went into the production.
