Stop Motion animation has real space and genuine textures,
which makes it very reliable. And in combination with incredible
fantasies, special lighting, movements of characters and a moving
camera, it provides a unique view of the world with 
a special atmosphere,
impossible to do except through S
top Motion animation. Stanislav Sokolov
