Stop-Motion Animation is the work that gives lives to the objects. In order to give lives to objects and to form story line to persuade the audience, it is important that the reason of choice of color, material, and texture has something to do with the narratives. For this study, among the Garri Bardin's animation, the ones with good representation of the objects have been chosen: Conflict (1983), Fioritures (1987), and Adagio (2000). With these animations, I would like to look for the meaning of existence of the objects, and to consider the importance of the relationship between the types of objects that are represented and the narratives.
