Pottermore Paper Art

J.K. Rowling's new website, Pottermore, is brilliantly and beautifully drumming up enthusiasm for the upcoming availability of the Harry Potter series of e-books. The site will feature fresh material about Harry's world, as well as a social-networking forum.



The short video, in which Rowling describes Pottermore, features astonishing stop motion paper art that I suspect may be the work of a well-known UK book artist, but I'm withholding my guess for now.

Thanks Ann....I had heard about this but hadn't seen the video.

Love the stop motion paper art...especially the owl. Oh what you can do with paper.

I believe it's actually an animation done by Andersen M studio. They do EXTRAORDINARY paper animations and should be salivated over appropriately.

Its so magical. Character emerging out of the book to enchant the readers is what her books have been doing and the video is so apt. Love the owl and the spiders.

Ann Martin said...

folderol, thanks for that; you could be correct. I remember Andersen M's Going West video.

Suganthi, I couldn't agree more.

You're welcome, Ann! I also love Going West - it's a spectacular stop-motion animation. I did a little more research and did find evidence that it was done by Andersen M. I love watching their process.

Kevin Stanton said...

That this was definitely done by Andersen M, I should have said.

Ann Martin said...

Thanks Kevin - good to know! What I wouldn't give to actually see Andersen M create one of their videos... fascinating.

Ah, a fellow Harry Potter fan! Everything these days is Harry Potter. My kids are driving me nuts with it, but I secretly am enjoying it. Thanks for the link to the stop motion animation.
