The legendary Ladislaw Starewicz created some of the most imaginative and loveliest works of puppet animation ever filmed. While working in Russia, he directed his first classic "The Cameraman's Revenge" (1912), a story of love and infidelity among the insects, and the recently rediscovered "The Insect's Christmas" (1913), a dazzlingly beautiful film of the Yuletide celebrations of a Christmas-tree ornament and his tiny friends. After relocating to Paris, Starewicz made the political allegory "Frogland" (1922), the gorgeous hand-colored fable "Voice of the Nightingale" (1923), the irresistible "The Mascot" (1933), and the snowland fantasy "Winter Carousel" (1958). Starewicz's grasshoppers, dogs, frogs, dolls and other creatures portray heroics and follies with an exuberance of humor and invention. They will delight viewers both young and old!

Amazing early stop-motion by chester March 6, 2003 - 8:01 AM PST

The Cameraman's Revenge & Other Fantastic Tales is an interesting montage of some of the earliest Stop-Motion Animation. It's amazing to watch Starewicz paint a picture using only insects. Worth renting if you're into Stop-Motion Animation or if you have an interest in silent movies. Otherwise, this type of fare may be too old or too slow for you.

Films featuring stop-motion animation - as the primary mode of filming (well, except for a few of the Svankmajer films)
