Written and directed by Australian Christopher Kezelos, and produced by Christine Kezelos, Zero is a stop-motion animation that cleverly takes a look at society’s minority groups through numbers.”We’re all born of the same matter, however we’re not all born equal’. Zero is born into a world where the higher your number, the more respected you […]
Not long after the recent cine-remake of the 1960s TV series, Dark Shadows, which starred the effervescent Johnny Depp, comes another grotesquely gorgeous stop-motion animation, Frankenweenie, directed by the bizarre Tim Burton. Frankenweenie was originally written by Burton in 1984 and is a parody of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. After 28 years, it will be shown in theaters in October. Before watching the full length, make sure you give its 30-minute version a view first. Check out young Sofia Coppola’s cameo in it, too.
Stop-motion animation always looks amazing, and this music video for a song by Josh Ritter is no exception. It was made with thousands of cut-out pieces of construction paper, and every time you think you’ve seen all they can do with the medium, they hit you with some amazing new effect. Definitely worth all of […]
Luis is by Niles Atallah, Cristobal Leon and Joaquin Cociña and is by far one of the most breathtaking uses of stop-motion animation. Luis is the second short video of the series, Lucía, Luis y el lobo, (”Lucía, Luis and the Wolf”). The video captures the menacing visuals of a childhood nightmare where shadows on […]
Mound, Allison Schulnik’s latest stop motion animation, is drop-dead stunning. She makes a world full of hobo clowns, dwarfs, and witches come to life in a way that everything pulses and melt with color. She has such a fine touch, I could just sit and watch her characters breathe. But fortunately, we get to see […]
When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Grease. There was just something about Olivia Newton-John and that naive wunderlust (hers, not mine) that grabbed by the collar and wouldn’t let go. YouTube user demondoggz obviously felt the same way. Though he made far more constructive use of his interest than I ever did.
At times floating out of the ether with the familiarity of forgotten Sunday mornings-while at others pounding out textured, thumping pop, the sound of experimental pop trio Sonoi might be difficult to describe, but that’s what makes it so appealing. This whimsical stop-motion animation video for album track, Red Ants, was directed by Via Nuon.
This awesome stop-motion animation made for the song Grindin’ by the Amsterdam-based electro group, Nobody Beats The Drum, features 4,085 photos and was patiently created in one room with more than 400 wooden blocks.
Written and directed by Australian, Adam Elliot, the Mary and Max stop-motion animation is his follow-up to the Oscar winning 2003 short, Harvie Krumpet. He’s a man dedicated to his art, with each scene individually shot using real figurines. It took him ages to create, and while the sombre storyline is directed squarely at adults, […]
Remember the thrill you used to get watching the Count go thrugh his familiar routine every week on Sesame Street? The adrenalin rush that would build as he got closer and closer to the end? Well, this stop-motion remake of the classic Pinball Number 12 animation from Sesame Street will get the blood pumping again. […]
Here’s something you don’t see every day: a skateboarding skeleton. The artist behind this is Darren Pearson, a master of light painting photography. The video, Light Goes On, is a stop-motion light painting animation that shows a skeleton living it up in the dark of the San Diego night. According to Pearson, it took him […]
Illustrator and animator Anitos has made a stop-motion animation that will make you chuckle. Using the classic song by Ray Cathode, aka George Martin, called Time Beat, it tells a story about a monster being born and trying to figure out its surroundings.
We’ve seen many Playmobil stop-motion videos, but none as well-shot as the ones by Karim Rejeb, who merges his love for both extreme sports and stop-motion animation into what he calls ‘xtrem stopmotion’ on his site. We really dig the surfing one above (all of over 7 minutes long!), while his most recent work is […]
Day Tripper is a stop-motion animation music video I created for Def Wish Cast’s recent album, Evolution Machine. The video features claymation caricatures of the pioneering Australian Hip Hop group, Def Wish Cast, running wildly through the city streets, promoting their upcoming performance and eventually finishing things off by delivering a high energy live show.
