Finland! Finland! Finland! /

 stop-motion typography

For my Typography II class, we were directed to choose a quick song or clip to animate; I, of course, went for something from one of my favorite humor groups, Monty Python. I chose the song "Finland," the raucous opener from Spamalot, because it was an appropriate length and had a good "plot" arc throughout the song, plus I thought it would be just plain fun. I took inspiration from Terry Gilliam's paper animations and created my own type-and-paper-puppets stop motion video.
