Artist Recreates The Old Man and the Sea With an Epic Stop-Motion Video

Tons of high school students have read Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, and chances are you’ve searched for the Spark Notes version at one point or another. Well, if you’re one of those kids still trying to avoid reading the book, artist Marcel Schindler has created an even better way to experience the classic story.

Take the incredible drawing ability of this Dutchman and add the amazingness of stop-motion technology and you get a story-board like sequence that’d make just about anyone want to pick up the book. We’re just waiting for Schindler’s rendition of ‘The Hunger Games,’ ‘Twilight‘ and ‘Harry Potter.’ Think those could be showstoppers?
