Edward Gorey's Dracula-- the animation

Here's a wonderful little gem-- Meijinproduction's stop-motion animation of DRACULA using Edward Gorey's wonderful drawings in a die-cut playset that you (as did the animator) could order through Amazon.

What I really love is the painstaking way that the animator has reproduced the look and feel of silent film and writing-- the overwrought language, the flicker of light. Just beautiful. See the entire short subject here:

  1. Thanks very much! I loved this piece. Nice blog you have there, too.

    Have you done anything on Old Dracula? I haven't thought about that movie in a long time, but it fits right in with your blog (and mine.)

  2. That was really swell, I'm going to have to subject all my Gorey fan friends to it.
