Erin Emocling Contributor

By Erin Emocling in Video on Thursday 12 July 2012

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.

Grease Summer Nights Lego stop-motion animation

Zolton Contributor

By Zolton in Video on Friday 15 April 2011

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.
