My favorite stop-motion short film
9 January 2012 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

At first I had never seen (or heard) of this short...Until I had watched it online at YouTube and after that I'd love it.

I loved that this short is a fairy tale, I still love fairy tales though I am 26-years-old. Anyway this short is an original fairy tale about a prince who sails on his flying ship to an enchanted castle in the clouds to save a beautiful, sleeping princess from a nasty witch. I also love that they put Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty waltz as part of the short's score.

Historically, stop-motion animation is the earliest form of animation starting with the German film The Adventures of Prince Achmed from 1926. So overall, that is all I could say and this short is one of my favorite shorts.
