Opiuo: Quack Fat

Video artists Dropbear created the stop-motion animation for Opiuo’s electro-funk track Quack Fat using 240 audio cassettes, 5,600 feet of video tape, 108 floppy discs and an old Sony Walkman. The tapes and discs make good pixels.

Transformers Generation

Transformers Generation

Harris Loureiro spent six months making this stop-motion Transformers fan film, using nothing more than mech toys, cardboard, campy rock music and cartoon voice acting. Michael Bay could learn a thing or two from Harris.

Domino Etch-a-Sketch

Domino Etch-a-Sketch

Domino master FlippyCat uses his dominoes in a different way than normal, instead of just knocking them over, he uses stop-motion animation to make a gigantic working Etch-a-Sketch. Then he knocks them over.

LEGO Psycho

LEGO Psycho

Bricktease made this stop-motion LEGO recreation of the shower stabbing scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Psycho. As a shot-for-shot remake, the tension is just as palpable as it was in the original movie.

The Boxtrolls End Credits Scene

The Boxtrolls End Credits Scene

Focus Features shares the final scene of The Boxtrolls, in which Richard Ayoade and Nick Frost’s characters unknowingly break the fourth wall, reminding us that stop-motion animation is incredibly tedious.

Vibrations

Vibrations

Propadata Films created this stop-motion animation using over 10,000 hex nuts to paint a picture of manufacturing and the tools of industry. Though we can’t recommend using a flat-blade screwdriver on hex nuts.

Submarine Sandwich

Submarine Sandwich

Animator PES just released his latest stop-motion flick, and it’s a doozie. Submarine Sandwich is set in an old-fashioned deli, where lunch is made from just about anything other than actual food. We’ll have a football and cash, hold the slinkies.

Protect Ya Passwordz

Protect Ya Passwordz

MC SafeSearch wants to talk about taking care of our online passwords, but the music video isn’t exactly helping him. Collegehumor’s cheesy rap parody is a promotion for Stop Think Connect. Bobby Secrets, you a busta.

Construxon Time Again

Construxon Time Again

Stop-motion animator Adam Brown appropriately used the discontinued Construx building toys in the music video for Construxon Time Again, a song by synthwave artist Jacob 2-2 (an alias that may also be familiar to ’80s kids).

The Dancing Traffic Light

The Dancing Traffic Light

For many pedestrians, the don’t walk sign is merely a suggestion. Carmaker Smart found a way to make people stop. It set up motion capture booths where people danced, and turned them into eye-catching signs. Making of here.

Skeeball 3D Chalk Art

Skeeball 3D Chalk Art

We’ve seen several fun things from Chris Carlson, and the hits keep on coming, this time in the form of an anamorphic 3D painting of a SkeeBall game, with some fun time lapse and stop-motion.

The Box Man

The Box Man

A man passes by an overturned box on the sidewalk. He stoops to peek into its hole, and finds a pair of eyes staring back at him. Nirvan Mullick’s stop-motion short was inspired by Kobo Abe’s eponymous novel.

Marilyn Myller

Marilyn Myller

Mikey Please follows up The Eagleman Stag with another metafictional stop-motion short. Marilyn Myller calls attention to the perverted catharsis that we’ve come to prefer over tedious tasks such as examination and reflection.

CHROMA

CHROMA

This awesomely colorful candy for our eyeballs combines Kandy Kruisers’ Firecracker LED wheels, Chris Chann’s skateboarding talents, Darren Dyk’s slow-motion camerawork effects artist John Felipo’s VFX to amp things up.

Retrograde

Retrograde

Director George Metaxas proves a good story and creativity trump slick production values in this amusing paper-cut stop-motion film about two passengers trapped on a doomed space station after they miss the chance to evacuate.

Animating with Adam Savage

Animating with Adam Savage

Adam Savage and Tested invited illustrator Marty Cooper – the man behind Aug(De)Mented Reality – to ask him how he makes his viral doodles and stop-motion short films. Then they make one clip, which you can see at 6:45.

Attack on Giant

Attack on Giant

Did Michael Bay disappoint you yet again? Let Harris Lourero restore your Transformers faith. He used Make Toys’ Giant Type 61 (Constructicons/Devastator) and Battle Tanker (Optimus Prime) to make this stop-motion short.

Movie Car Battle Action

Movie Car Battle Action

It’s the stuff that childhood fantasies are made of in the latest stop-motion film from Counter656, as Optimus Prime takes on the Batmobile and the DeLorean from Back to the Future in an epic fight. Be sure to stick around for a surprise.

Fight!

Fight!

Two pro wrestling puppets duke it out in this hilarious commercial for the 2013 Festival National du Film d’Animation. Emma De Swaef and Marc James Roels directed the stop-motion animated short.

Butter Ya’Self

Butter Ya’Self

(NSFW: Language) The contents of your pantry have never been as hardcore as in this stop-motion animation by Julian Petschek, a hip-hop clip based loosely on the story of Drake and Lil’ Wayne. We kid you not.

HISHE: The LEGO Movie

HISHE: The LEGO Movie

How It Should Have Ended and Brotherhood Workshop take on the stop-motion animated LEGO Movie, and the implausible capture of all of those LEGO superheroes towards the end of the flick… as if the rest of the flick was plausible.

Snake 3D Chalk Art

Snake 3D Chalk Art

Another neat stop-motion video from chalk artist Chris Carlson. Watch as the classic mobile game Snake comes alive. Can you believe we only had this and Space Impact before, and now we have freakin’ XCOM on our phones?

Vacationer: The Wild Life

Vacationer: The Wild Life

The stop-motion lyric video for Vacationer’s The Wild Life. It’s a bright and cheerful track from Relief, an album that promises to have “a cinematic wallop of positivity-oozing pop.” Stash this one in your summer playlist.

Action Bill

Action Bill

William Shatner goes back in time to kill William Shakespeare. Two great Bills collide in AMAA Productions’ silly LEGO stop-motion short film. It’s worth watching just for the minifig reverse toupee.
