The Festival’s Award

Every year, the Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival selects a winner in each of the 4 categories of competition: Academic, Independent, Professional Short and Professional Long.  The Award each winner receives is called “The Little Henry.”

“The Little Henry” is a ball and socket armature similar to the one first designed by Marcel Delgado for the production of King Kong in 1933. The principle is simple, yet very effective. Two steel balls are sandwiched between two plates which enables the rotation of parts along their axis.  This provides a liberty of movement to a skeletal structure. Even after nearly 80 years, the principle is still being used for the construction of characters from big animation studios.

Erik Goulet, the Festival’s founder, has been constructing these armatures since 1988. When the idea of creating a film festival arose in 2009, it was clear to him that the award for such an event had to be a ball and socket armature.

We wish to extend our gratitude to our partners who, since the very first edition of the Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival, have supported us in the construction of “The Little Henry” awards. Métaux Solution provides us with the raw steel material and Deco-Spec helps with the look and feel of the awards by nickel plating the armature parts.
