Have you ever wondered if a piece of stone can walk or talk, well anything is possible in animation? Using frame by frame animation, physical static objects are moved around and during the post production it is shown in a fluid movement. Stop motion animation has been around ever since the evolution of puppets. There were many movies created using the stop motion method, some of the finest examples are “Fun in a bakery shop” created in 1902. Edwin Porter directed "The Teddy Bears," which was one of the earliest stop-motion animation films. The movie is a short sequence of playing teddy bears, just over a minute in length, which took over 50 hours to animate. In this post we have included 30 Best Stop Motion Videos and Ideas - Stop Frame Animation
Simple stories told beautifully can have a great impact. 38–39ºC is such a story. It’s a film that fluctuates between narrative and experimental elements to tell the story of a rocky relationship between a father and son.The son visits a Korean bathhouse where time seems to stand still as he slips into a deep dream. In this dream, he meets his father (who shares an identical birthmark), and what begins as a cordial bathhouse scrub becomes a violent struggle to break free from his family roots.
Undone - stop motion video
Brilliant stop-motion from Hayley Morris, a young animator working now for Curious Pictures. The 6 minute Undone was her thesis film from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2008, and won Best Animation at Slamdance 2009.The film is a poignant metaphor for the debilitating effects of Alzheimer’s disease, something which Ms. Morris’ grandpa suffered.
ohnny Kelly graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2007 and his diploma film, Procrastination, made quite a splash online a couple of years back. Nowadays he’s more into commercial gigs via London’s esteemed Nexus Productions, but of course that doesn’t preclude creating work of high artistic value.
The latest branded short to roll out from Nokia, Gulp is a followup of sorts to the popular film Dot which has been hailed as “the world’s smallest stop-motion” by Nokia, Aardman Animation and Portland’s Wieden + Kennedy, the agency behind the campaign. For symmetry’s sake, Gulp is, naturally, filmed “on the world’s largest stop-motion set”.
A strange world where experience, both familiar and unfamiliar, is cut-up, upside-down and otherwise displaced, as modernist shapes move and construct themselves in almost organic ways. AANAATT, a 2008 music video from artist Max Hattler is a sublime stop-motion animation that hearkens back to 40's and 50's abstract films through its geneological exploration of shape and movement with music.
Zero is a deliberately paced film, rare for an animation, but which serves it well. The loneliness and heart-ache of our character is given time to establish itself, as each slight is given an extra beat in which to sink in, giving needed help in selling character emotional states—these being the most problematic part of the character design due to the low level of articulation for the faces.
Kirsten Lepore must be very much in demand. She just has to be. She has the most perfectly attuned sensibilities I have yet seen in a short filmmaker towards what is current in culture. Her animations, a mix of twee and handicraft enveloped in bittersweet wrappers, are amazing artifacts; clever and nostalgic in mood, precious and handcrafted in design
In the tradition of his viral hit Western Spaghetti, PES has a new stop-motion piece out today, commissioned by the Showtime channel. PES is justifiably loved for his unique animations in which everyday objects stand-in to represent all manners of things, and in this short 1:30 animation he recreates the ocean depths using simple tools.
This has been out for awhile but for those who haven’t had the chance to see the latest work from stop-motion master, Pes, I invite you to take a look at Western Spaghetti. Done in his now-iconic fashion, Pes recreates the steps of cooking spaghetti using only found toys and playthings.
For those without love, there is nothing more annoying about today than all those happy couples rubbing your face in that fact. Especially if you’ve been recently burnt. Been there, done that, so I apologize.
This short is sure to elicit some nostalgic delight in anyone familiar with the old arcade games of the 1970s and 80s including Frogger and Space Invaders.In Game Over, Pes (rhymes with “yes”) has recreated these iconic games using ordinary household items through the process of stop-motion animation—objects chosen not only for their formal characteristics but also for their interpretive meaning.
With glowing feedback from fellow animators Mikey Please, Emma De Swaef, Patrick Doyon and The Moth Collective in the comments section of the Slow Derek trailer on Vimeo, Dan Ojari’s stop-motion short is gaining a formidable reputation as one of the stand-out animations of recent years. Since its premiere as part of the Royal College of Art show back in 2011, Ojari’s short has toured film festivals worldwide, picking up several well-deserved awards along the way.
Wow! Hot on the heels of Minkyu Lee releasing Adam and Dog online, the NFTS has posted Head Over Heels to YouTube. Now almost the entire Animation field is online, minus The Simpsons. Check out our updated Oscar page with full links.Head Over Heels is a graduate work from Timothy Reckart, made while at the NFTS. Considering PES’ large profile nowadays, Reckart is the choice for all of us who root for underdogs. The film makes such rooting easy, as it is a truly impressive effort, with an...
Short student films always have the opportunity to surprise, regardless of the school they come from, or how polished. Benigni was created as a simple class exercise at Finland’s Turku Arts Academy—it’s not even a graduation film, but the charm of its bizarre story got it a spot in Annecy 2010.
Stop-motion, one of the oldest and most basic forms of filmmaking, has somehow continued to captivate us for over 100 years. It’s magical ability to bring the everyday world to life with realistic detail just hasn’t been matched by 3D animation. Kirsten Lepore, Mikey Please, and Max Winston, are some who make up the avant garde of today’s stop-motion storytellers.
The Eagleman Stag is a rare feat of short filmmaking. Resolutely strange, mysteriously beautiful, Michael Please’s Royal College of Art dissertation + recent BAFTA award-winning film is a masterpiece of both conceptual and technical prowess. Stirring monochrome models and sets pair with a foolishly ambitious, but breathless narrative, to create a whole which is unlike anything you’ve seen before. Epitomizing the promise of the form, The Eagleman Stag is a true realization of short film’s...
