Editors Review: 
Woody Filmed over a period spanning two years, this stop-motion short titled Woody by filmmaker Stuart Bowen.The film is free of both dialogue and color, and instead oozes with a stylistic attention to detail in lighting, sets, and animation techniques mastered by Bowen and his team. Woody was first released in 2013 and toured festivals worldwide. the animation in woody is astounding in its subtlety and smoothness. The film is clearly influenced by the films of Tim Burton, which is appropriate given that Burton has been one of the shepherds of stop motion animation in recent years. Any viewer would be hard-pressed to be unmoved by the imagination and innovation on display during Woody. Every aspect of the film, from the animation to the intricate designs of costumes and sets, work together seamlessly to create something truly special. The film won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Animated Short at the Seattle International Film Festival . this film will linger in your mind long.
