Coraline

I finally got to see Coraline this weekend. I was really excited to see a 3D movie, because I never have before. The theatre said it would be in 3D, but when we got there it wasn't! Turns out a 5:45 show on Saturday isn't in 3D. Thanks for letting me know internet. We didn't want to wait around until 7:00 to see it in 3D. Anyways, the movie was still amazing. I am most blown away by how it was made. There are tons of great videos on youtube that show the artists making all the crazy stuff. Did you know the cherry blossoms are actually popcorn? Watch this talented lady make miniature sweaters:

And this woman poke on every single piece of hair(!):

Whoa! :D Thanks for posting this, it was so interesting! I can't believe these people have the patience to work on such a small scale. Makes me appreciate it even more! :D

That sucks that you didn't get to watch it in 3D! Hopefully when it comes out on DVD it will still be in 3D, that would be really cool :) Those videos were crazy! I can't imagine knitting such a tiny sweater or putting each individual hair on them! The belly hair was pretty funny :)

Wow, sure makes you take a closer look at what you see and ask yourself, how was that done.
