That does it. I have got to learn how to do stop animation. This imaginative work by Salon Alpin, is as much about surfing as it is about books and taking on life's new challenges. It had to be an incredible challenge just to make this story about a bookmark who takes up surfing on the pages of an open book. The team Alpin folks have to be surfers, as every wave, every crest, every splash and nuance of the surfing is spot on. Even the glare of the sun on the curl of the wave brings me back to the beach. After you watch the original, you can learn how it was done here, here and then here. Truly a delight.
