We Are The Strange was the title. Now meet the players who live inside, idle." The story
of filmmaker M dot Strange
and his solo indie masterpiece, We Are The Strange

In 1920, Slavko Vorkapić
, an artist from Vojvodina (now Serbia) emigrated to the United States. He roamed the country for a year and ended up in Hollywood where he became a master of special effects. He began to teach at USC where a young student, Art Clokey
was starting his film studies. Art Clokey also happened to tutor the son of Sam Engel
-- famous producer and President of the MPAA. Clokey, mentored by the special effects master at USC, made a little art film using stop motion and claymation. One day he showed his "artsy" student film to Engel. When it was over, Mr. Engel said: "Art, that's the most excting film I've ever seen. We've got to go into business together." That is the story
(video). And the rest is history
(previously on MeFi).

Skeletor and Gang:
What is it about the combination of stop-motion animation, He-Man action figures, and sped-up heavy metal that makes me laugh until I hurt? "Skeletor, Mantenna and Grizzlor are having a party! Oh no! Moss-Man attacks! Defend us Squeeze!"
