Stop-action animation is indeed overlooked by not only the Academy, but the public, as well. Too many times has animation in general been snubbed and been dismissed as child's play, impervious to profundity and sophistication.

A text as revered as "The Epic of Gilgamesh" adapted to the said style intrigues me - an indulgent paradox of literature and juvenility. Glad to have ran into this article! Beautifully written.
