Wiggle Room (Stop-Motion Animation)

Many things happen around the kitchen when you’re not there. Come along for the ride with the most unlikely character… a slug. Watch as he ventures into a new world filled with vibrant colors and delicious treats. However, the soothing environment is only a disguise for the evil that is lurking nearby.

First time animator, Joey Shanks brings you a “stop-motion” film like no other. With many “stop-motion” animated films are shot at 12 frames per second, many of the high paced scenes of this film have been shot between 24 – 60 frames per second.

With such a high frame rate comes “highly detailed” and “super smooth” animated sequences. With some 2 seconds clips taking up to 8 hours to capture, we hope audiences will appreciate the extra frames included. The reliance on CGI was avoided to help create an organic look and feel.

The imperfections of stop-motion animation is what makes it a magical medium of storytelling. We hope “Wiggle Room” will be a refreshing reprise to an old art form of cinema.
