3 Hours Per Frame: Creating Of Wood

Directed by Morgan Jones
Documentary Short
United States | 15 min | 2022

Old and forgotten animation techniques put to use to create a celebrated stop-cut animation. The animator, is none other than Owen Klatte, who debuted his craft with the Gumby episodes, then went on to many famous films, including James and the Giant Peach, and Nightmare Before Christmas. You will experience his process up to the riveting moment when he shoots the last shot!

Three Hours Per Frame: Creating Of Wood was my pandemic project. I often wore a mask during our shoots. I feel honored to have been able to record the creation of OF Wood, a much celebrated stop-cut animation. Owen was a lot of fun to work with and I’m sure everyone will love meeting him in this film.
