Scrabble Anniversary

This is what wasting time roaming around the Web will get you. The occasional “I can’t believe it!!” gem. I don’t recall how I originally ended up on the Laughing Squid web site, but one circuitous journey eventually found me on this link, a commercial project done by some creative folks at a company called Pes – all in celebration of Scrabble’s 60th anniversary a year or two ago. I never tire of a good clip of stop-motion animation. Particularly after my husband and I took a workshop in the medium at the Disney Institute in Florida a number of years ago. We spent a few hours on a nano-film that ends up running about 6 seconds. It exponentially increased my appreciation for the art of stop-motion animation. The “Western Spaghetti” link on that same page is pretty cool too.
