“Move Mountain” animation by Kirsten Lepore

kirstenlepore-movemountain

One of the most talented artists I know, Kirsten Lepore, has finally released her CalArts graduate thesis film and it is incredible. “Move Mountain” is a masterpiece, a wonderful story about healing, expertly told and gorgeously animated. This is what it looks like when a filmmaker has complete control of her craft.

I interviewed Kirsten last year and we talked about her previous films, and briefly about how a song by The Knife kinda inspired “Move Mountain” (read the interview here). She remains one of only a few people to ever guest post on Booooooom, and her post of hand drawn animations is still one of my favourites in the history of this site (see it here).

Check out those links, turn up your speakers, turn down your lights, and enjoy her film below!

    Very well done. You should watch “oh willy”, it’s my favorite stop-motion animation, and it won a ton of prizes.

    The camera motion is flawless & the main character is so well done. Definitely one of the best stop motion films I’ve ever seen.
