Pinocchio Stop Motion Style

I asked Guillermo how his stop motion PINOCCHIO will be different from Tim Burton's successful stop motion films (THE CORPSE BRIDE, NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS). His reply was that PINOCCHIO will not be as sleek, and will be more "gritty" and closer to Jan Svankmajer's style.

I have embedded a YouTube clip of a Svankmajer work below to give you an idea:



Be patient with this project - GDT and Gris Grimly are still shopping this idea and haven't found a home for it yet.

wonderful, Gris's stuff is pretty amazing, and I love GDT - I have no doubt that what ever the manage to work on together will be stellar.
But if I NEVER see that clip you posted again, it will be too soon.
