Video Sunday – Amorous Pig Edition
Oh, lemme see here. We’ve a couple things here and there that are available, so let’s not waste time.
Neil Gaiman says that this won’t be up very long, so hopefully it will still be working by the time you see it. It’s a Coraline trailer IN 3-D!!! What, you don’t own 3-D glasses? Yeah, neither do I. Doesn’t really matter, though. Looks like this was filmed on a handheld camera in a movie theater, doesn’t it?:
Sara O’Leary sent me a lovely little book trailer for one of my favorite picture books of 2006 When You Were Small. It’s rather lovely and you’ll find it here.
Speaking of book trailers, I’m very partial to this little one. It’s promoting an upcoming Feiwel and Friends picture book that has absolutely charmed me. Watch the trailer and tell me it doesn’t strike you as well.
Has anyone else ever seen the film version of The Marzipan Pig by Russell Hoban? That’s what that trailer reminded me of.
Picture books with computer art in their gills look neat, but did you ever wonder how the artists made them in the first place? Bob Staake has the answer in a series of different web videos. Here’s a little man for starters..
And it’s a little off-topic, but it involves kids and I got it from Sarah Miller’s blog. I think this is particularly useful for people who can’t quite imagine what the difference between a four-year-old and a six-year-old is.
I think that ninety-one is my favorite.
