During a promotional tour in South Korea, Jack Black stopped by the game show Infinite Challenge, and played a game where he wore a stocking on his head while trying to blow out a candle. His competitor, comedian Gwang hee Hwang looks even more ridiculous.

Anomalisa: Tiny Things

In this series of all too short clips from Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson’s Anomalisa, we go inside some of the tricks of the trade the film’s animators used to bring their tiny stop-motion world to life. Now we want to see how they made every little detail.

Bygone Behemoth

Bygone Behemoth

Stop-motion animator Harry Chaskin presents the somber tale of a washed-up movie monster as he reminisces about days gone by. You’d think that after the studio tells him he’s done, he’d at least crush, crumble, and chomp on their building for old time’s sake.

A Fixed System

LEGO Captain America 3

Anomalisa (Trailer)

Anomalisa (Trailer)

A magical looking stop-motion animated film, written by enigmatic auteur Charlie Kaufman who co-directed the film with Duke Johnson, described as “a film about a man crippled by the mundanity of his life.” You may remember it from its Kickstarter campaign.

Imagination

Imagination

PermaGrin Films’ tribute to childhood is one of the most complex stop-motion/time-lapse videos ever. It was filmed over the course of one-and-a-half years and in various locations. We’re not fans of the Pure Imagination remix they used, but we can’t argue with the result.

Honda: Paper

Trailer

Trailer

(PG-13 language) Mascha Halberstad’s stop-motion animated short pokes fun at the overdone style of big budget Hollywood trailers, though in this case, there’s a slight mismatch between the hyperbole and the hero of the film.

Sony RX100 IV

Sony RX100 IV

The king of point-and-shoots returns with an even smaller body, thanks in part to its 20.1MP 1″ Exmos RS CMOS sensor. The RX100 Mk. IV can also shoot 4K video for up to 5min. at a time and full HD slow motion at up to 1000fps.

Mussel Beach

Mussel Beach

Stop-motion master PES grills some mussels that he picked up from Muscle Beach. They’re really meaty, but we’re not sure if we’d want to eat them. A funny commercial for Lipton iced tea. What was the tea made of?!
