THE BEST Stop Motion

Shibuya Crossing Stop Motion

Shibuya Crossing Stop Motion

Swimming Design promoted Terada Mokei’s 1:100 architectural figures by using the paper models to recreate the world famous Shibuya Crossing, i.e. the jam-packed intersection news channels often show when talking about Tokyo.

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.

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?!

Opiuo: Quack Fat

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.

LEGO_Adventure in the City

LEGO_Adventure in the City

A boy narrates what happens when a peaceful city is attacked by the dreaded Gray. Rogier Wieland’s awesome stop-motion short film for LEGO China keeps things fresh by constantly switching scales and perspectives.

Son Lux: Change is Everything

Son Lux: Change is Everything

The amazing music video for the lead single from Son Lux’s upcoming album Bones. The Made Shop’s Nathan Johnson and Katie Chastain used foam boards, pins and rubberized thread to mimic primitive polygonal graphics.

Hole Punch Flipbooks

Hole Punch Flipbooks

Bored at your desk? Got a hole punch, a notepad, and plenty of patience? Like artist Scott Blake, you too could create your own flipbook animation using these common office supplies. Too lazy for that? Just buy one that’s already made up.

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.

Table Saw Stop-Motion

Table Saw Stop-Motion

Woodworker Frank Howarth shot nearly 6,000 stills, then assembled this stop-motion animation to create the illusion that his table saw and its accessories have lives of their own, and require no human intervention to operate.

LEGO Jurassic Park Fan Film

LEGO Jurassic Park Fan Film

Digital Wizards Studios used over $100,000 worth of LEGO to recreate some of the most memorable scenes from Jurassic Park. Though in the spirit of LEGO films and games they added humourous twists here and there as well.

BTTF LEGO Clock Tower Sequence

BTTF LEGO Clock Tower Sequence

A spot-on recreation of the classic clock tower sequence from Back to the Future, painstakingly animated using stop motion by Macro LEGO Universe. It’s so well done that we want to see the entire movie trilogy in LEGO.

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.

The Very Best: Let Go

The Very Best: Let Go

The music video for Let Go, a single from Afro-pop band The Very Best. Pixel artist Johan Karlgren of Päppas Parlor used Perler beads to create the 8-bit style stop motion animation.

Little Dreams

Little Dreams

Filmmaker Wilkie Branson created this beautiful and heartfelt animated short by hand-cutting more than 4,000 individual printouts of dance movements from his other film, then compositing them into larger than life backdrops.

Lightspeed

Lightspeed

“Take a trip to the Photon Zoo” with Darren Pearson’s impressive collection of light paintings. Lightspeed is the sequel to Darren’s 2014 video Light Goes On. The song is Clouds by Dead Horse Beats.

Rabbit and Deer

Rabbit and Deer

Despite its deceptively simple visual style, Director Péter Vácz award-winning short film is a masterpiece of storytelling that will quickly draw you in to its world, as it brilliantly explores the tenuous nature of interpersonal relationships.

The Art of LAIKA Auction

The Art of LAIKA Auction

LAIKA, the brilliant animators behind films like Coraline, ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls are auctioning off screen-used puppets and props from their films. A portion of the proceeds benefit The Art of Elysium, a non-profit arts organization.

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.

Latte Motion

Latte Motion

Maxim Stick released this touching stop-motion animation which features 1,000 cafe lattes, each with a work of art drawn on top. They cheated a bit using stencils and cocoa powder instead of drawing in the foam, but its still well done.

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.

LEGO Star Wars: Force Awakens

LEGO Star Wars: Force Awakens

Snooperking made this shot-for-shot LEGO remake of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser. It could use a bit of polish here and there – note the strings on the TIE fighters – but damn that was quick. Oh, and not to be outdone

LEGO Batman vs. Superman

LEGO Batman vs. Superman

The Dark Knight from the LEGO movies challenges the Man of Steel to a battle. For some reason. Superman doesn’t get it either and refuses to fight, but Bats is determined to throw everything but the Bat Kitchen Sink at him.

Marcel the Shell 3

Marcel the Shell 3

Husband and wife team Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp are back with our favorite existential hero in a conch shell. Watch him talk about a grape and sing a heartbreaking rendition of A Perfect Day. He also has a new book.

The Hobbit in 72 Seconds

The Hobbit in 72 Seconds

You could sit through 8+ hours of Peter Jackson Hobbit movies, or you could watch Brotherhood Workshop’s LEGO-fied speedrun, which sums up the entire trilogy in about 1/400th the time.

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).

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.
