The (Pumpkin) King of Stop Motion Animation (feat. Damon Bard)
If you don’t know Henry Selick by name, you certainly know his puppets. The Stop Motion guru behind “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993), “James and the Giant Peach” (1996) and “Coraline” (2009) has been capturing children’s imaginations—and perhaps lovingly scarring them, too—for 30 years.
our favorite movies
Be Reel is a movie reviewing & reappraising podcast hosted by Chance Solem-Pfeifer and Noah Ballard.
Each time out, we select three movies based around a genre and call up guests ranging from submarine captains to Oscar winners. Then, we rate the movies, weighing both technical quality and entertainment.
Noah and Chance are old friends who mostly respect each other’s opinions. Even though Chance is a fool and a traitor. Find their show presented at ThePlaylist.Net and follow them on Twitter for the latest on Noah’s literary agenting and Chance’s work in the Portland arts scene.
