I did my first experiments with stop motion animation in 1978. That was a long time ago. My early films had a lot of giant monster destruction. What did you expect, I was a kid. Later the fights got a little more immediate but they were always short and involved weapons. Even The Lady of Names, whose finale is a 9 minute battle scene, was all sword play. That’s why it came as a bit of a surprise to me that I’ve never actually animated a straight up, mano a mano, gloves off, drag down, no holds barred, last man standing fist fight. These two very large puppets are about to spar in just that fashion and I must say I’m giddy at the thought of it … like I’m 10 years old again.
