Tim Burton's Vincent is a masterpiece; the short was animated by the brilliant Stephen Chiodo. I do love that the short was shot in black and white film, ask any true film-lover andyou will get the same answer. Burton's Vincent Took on Stop Motion and owned it. Films like The Nightmare before Christmas, Coraline, ParaNorman, and Frankenweenie, all have followed suit in a similar look to Tim Burton's Vincent, being the first prototype of dark humor stopmo, it deserves respect, so, respect the film already!
Next, I will school you in scale. Scale is a term used to refer to how large of small and object, like a Stop Motion puppet, is. Usually, when people in the stopmo business refer to a three inch puppet as quarter scale puppet, you don't know what the heck they are trying to say! It's like this: 'full scale' is when a puppet is between eight and twelve inches, 'half scale' is four to seven inches and 'quarter scale is one to three inches, 'micro scale' is anything smaller than an inch.
