In this playful stopmotion animation, monsters come alive and move to the beats & melody of the music. The characters come into existance after a failure in a laboratory, from which they manage to escape and find their way into the city, leaving a path of destruction behind.
The animation aims to bring colorful cartoonlike effects as seen in asian mangamovies to life in stopmotion. Inspired by early animationtechniques such as used in the Monsterfilms by Ray Harryhausen. His films togehter with Japanse "Kajumonsters" formed the Neomonster filmgenre in the early 1950´s. These films centralised the battle between a monster and the human world, while blending in elements from Horror, Fantasy and Science Fiction movies.
The neo-monster filmgenre uses speculative depictions of phenonema that are not necessarily accepted by mainstream beliefs, such as extraterrestial life forms, alien worlds and timetravel, often along with futuristic elements such as spacecraft, robots or other technologies derived from Science Fiction, used by filmmakers who were indiffrent to scientific plausibility and plotlogic.
The genre has existed since the early years of silent cinema, when Georges Meiles
"A trip to the Moon" from 1902 amazed audiences with its trick photography effects.
The animated creatures got modeled after exstinct animals from the Natural History Museum.
