“This corner of the Internets is a space to experiment with a neat flash game that lets you create stop-motion animations. All you need is a webcam, a few seconds and a little imagination.”
Wiki: Vladislav Starevich (August 8, 1882 – February 26, 1965), born Władysław Starewicz (Russian: Владисла́в Алекса́ндрович Старе́вич), was a Polish stop-motion animator who used insects and animals as his protagonists. (His name can also be spelled Starevitch, Starewich and Starewitch.)
Yes, you read it right.
The Cameraman’s Revenge (1912, 13 minutes) is about infidelity among the insects, a topic which I dare say has never before or after been attempted on film.
It opens with Mr. Beetle going to town “on business,” to stop at “The Gay Dragonfly,” a burlesque parlor.
He meets a dancer who he takes to a hotel room… the grasshopper at left wanted her too, though, and he’s mad at the beetle’s rudeness.. he’s also got a movie camera!
