The stop-motion animation technique, when a video is formed by gluing together countless shots, is now popular again. So the Mexican director Guillermo del Toro was going to use it in the film adaptation of Lovecraft’s novel “The Ridges of Madness”, reports IndieWire, citing the director himself.
Recall that 15 years ago, the director filmed a CGI video with a separate scene from the Ridges of Madness. But the shooting of the film never started.
Now del Toro is preparing for the premiere of “Pinocchio”, which should take place on December 9th. The director used the stop-motion technique to create the film. In his interview, he noted that creating pictures with countless photo sequences is difficult, but the audience loves animation, so he would like to use a similar technique in “The Ridges of Madness”.
Recall that in Lovecraft’s novel, the action takes place in Antarctica. One of the expedition members discovers traces of an ancient civilization and living monsters in the ice.
