‘Marilyn Myller’, A Stop-Motion Animated Short About the Frustrations of Stop-Motion Animation

“Marilyn Myller” is a stop-motion animated short by British artist Mikey Please that stars comedian Josie Long as the titular protagonist who experiences some extreme frustration while attempting to create animation of her own.

A year in the making, the full six minute stopmotion short features the voice of Josie Long, one zillion hand carved tiny things, literally tens of carved foam puppets, two eye fulls of in-camera, long-exposure light trickery and a pair of tiny dolphins, smooching.

The team behind the short has also created a time-lapse video of some of that creation process.
