"My problem is not the online availability, it is that I live in a rural area with rubbish broadband. It is often only possible to watch YouTube videos about 5 seconds at a time. I might try to watch the film one night when I can't sleep. 2am we…"

"Ouch! It's 40 Euros to ship within Europe. How heavy is a DVD???"

StopmoNick replied to Steve Boot's discussion O Apostolo online
"I looked on their site and found where I could order the DVD at a very reasonable 10 Euro - I would pay up to 20 or 25 E. But shipping to Rest of the World is 45 Euro, which unfortunately is a deal breaker. So I may have to look at the pay per view…"

grecodan replied to Steve Boot's discussion Boxtrolls - its not all stopmotion!
"I agree. There were some shots where it was very obvious what was going on with the faces. Compared with the smoothness of the body animation, it was a bit jarring. Although I do think it was partially the design of the characters. Lord…"
