こま撮りってなに?
コマの連続
dwarf is specialized at “Stop Motion Animation”, as well as “Character Design”.
“Stop Motion Animation” is a traditional shooting technique that we shoot consecutive frames by moving puppets and props (and sometimes the camera itself) in a very small amount between frames.
“Domo”, ”Komaneko”, “Wallace and Gromit”, “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, and “PINGU”, etc… All of these are filmed using this technique.

At “Stop Motion Animation”, one is called "Puppet Animation” where puppets are mainly used, and another is called “Clay Animation” where clay is mainly used. In either case, “Stop Motion Animation” is created frame-by-frame, and therefore we call it “komadori” in Japanese; “koma” meaning “frame”, and “dori” meaning “to take a picture”.

In an empty studio, we place puppets, set up lightings, and then take a picture. Thus, a new world gets created. And then, at the moment puppets start moving, a story begins.

This is a world of handmade. Everything, from the sky, mountain, sun, to the movement and expression, is handmade. That is how we create warm and dateless movies that can not be achieved in live-action films or computer graphics.

At dwarf, we have animators and the studio for “Stop Motion Animation”. Please feel free to ask us anything if you are interested in “Stop Motion Animation”.
