Stanley Pickle is a multi award-winning stop-motion animated short film directed by UK filmmaker Vicky Mather. It is available to watch on iTunes and Vimeo, where it has received the Staff Pick and Short of the Week.
Stanley never goes outside. He likes to play with his clockwork toys and every night his mother kisses him goodnight. Stanley is twenty. The trouble is that Stanley thinks this is all quite normal, until an encounter with a mysterious girl turns his world upside down…
The film uses a technique called ‘Pixilation’, where actors are animated as opposed to stop-motion puppets. Stanley Pickle was shot frame by frame on two sets and two locations, using a stills camera and Dragon Stop-Motion Software.
