The LEGO Ghostbusters Movie

The LEGO Ghostbusters Movie

Things Sanded Down

Things Sanded Down

Using an edge sander, Laurin Döpfner shaved a variety of objects 0.5mm at a time, taking a picture of the result of each pass. The result is a mesmerizing – albeit destructive – analog version of a CT scan.

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.

Aug(De)Mented reality

Aug(De)Mented reality

Marty Cooper (aka “Hombre_McSteez”) combined doodles drawn with a Sharpie and Wite-Out on transparencies with live-action backgrounds to create this amusing animated short film. Marty also creates silly still images.

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.

Five people depicted as cute plants or animals share their stories of loss – a pet, a body part, a friend and parents – how they overcame it and what they took from the experience. A heartwarming claymation by Fiona Dalwood.

Woodoo

Here’s another brilliant stop-motion animation made using wood. Director André Maat “wanted to play with the shape and consistency of wood and bring it to life” and made the material behave like clay.

A Girl Named Elastika

A Girl Named Elastika

A peek at the life of Elastika, a happy-go-lucky adventurer. Irene deserves a lot of credit too. Using only rubber bands and thumbtacks, director Guillaume Blanchet created a vivid world by leaving much to our imagination.
