Jamie Bell’s Brief History of Everything is by no means comprehensive, but it is epic: the flipbook video was drawn with biro pens and took 2,100 pages, 50 jotter books, and 3 weeks to make.
Rhett&Link’s T-shirt War puts our paltry graphic tee collection to shame, with Rhett and Link changing shirts over 100 times each in a stop-motion battle; yes, the 222 t-shirts are for sale.
Lv Sisi’s Digital Analogue is true to its name; the kinetic stop motion short film was edited digitally but is composed of over 6,000 still photos and set to sounds made by antique cameras.
Whether or not you believe that this Bad Apple video was made without photo-editing, it’s still a pretty badass stop-motion piece; it was created with 6,566 printouts captured on a webcam.
Mixing assassins with Google’s Nexus One thankfully only results in a lot of shredded cardboard: Ninja’s Unboxing is a sharp warning to blister packs and shrink wrapping everywhere.
Video artist mustardcuffins calls it a stop motion animation, but we prefer the Giz’s “morph motion”: amazingly creepy and disorienting, Drift was created using a digital still camera.
Boston College student Ryan does a literal take on Paper Mario with Paper Mario Bros. 3; it took 36 hours, 300 frames, and was made with paper, colored pencils, glue, and cardboard.
Serene Teh’s Parkour Motion Reel is a bit of finger gymnastics in and of itself; it’s a fantastic stop-motion animation drawn with a technical pen that really puts the “flip” in flip book.
Disco dancing sounds and looks good on paper with Rob Diaz’s Elio, which shows the perils of going Travolta at your 9-5; the stop-motion short film was shot using a Nokia XpressMusic 5800.
John Huang’s Stop Motion Gundam videos are mobile suit mayhem at its finest; he not only uses anime fighting styles and special effects, but mixes in Dragon Ball and Star Wars.
Due out early 2010, Battle of the Brick: Built for Combat is a 25 minute LEGO Halo short film made by Alex Kobb; it recreates the Zanzibar map with an epic battle of Red vs. Blue.
The result of 440 hours of work and a horde of Agent Smiths, Matrix’s legendary bullet-time scene gets reimagined with LEGO bricks; it was created to celebrate the movie’s 10th anniversary.
Aptly set to Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” (also stop-motion), watch as a Suzuki GSX-R assembles itself; it took 30 hours to film, but the ending is the coolest: the bike ran on first start-up.
Even if you take The Machine at face value (The Matrix w/puppets), it’s hard to miss its morality play angle; it’s otherwise a gorgeous stop-motion film styled like an old-time nickel arcade.
