The toughest thing about getting up in the morning (other than getting up in the morning) is realizing all the things you have to do to make yourself decent to society. I’m not talking about just brushing your teeth, shaving, or showering. I’m talking about having to open your eyes and walk around and move your arms…
After seeing these paper versions of classic video games, I kind of wish I could play them all. Mystery Guitar Man used stop-motion animation and paper cutouts of stock images to recreate games like Donkey Kong, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario Kart, and more. It’s fun to see the video games of our childhood done over in…
We’ve been writing about Kubo and the Two Strings since we first realized it existed. Since then, with each subsequent look, the stop-motion animated film from the people behind Coraline and Paranorman looks more and more amazing. The latest trailer is no exception.
“Night Stalker” follows a young woman’s journey into a weird and terrifying land, courtesy of a takeout container that is a portal for a dangerous creature. Hold on to your face.
Christophe Peladan’s Goutte d’Or is so brilliantly conceived and executed, all other undead pirate stories (looking at you Pirates of the Caribbean) will fall from memory.
Finding a new roommate is complicated enough when the only people making the decision live inside the house. In this kooky animated short, a trio of oddball roommates have to let their sentient house in on the process.
This is absolutely one of the coolest and most fun videos I’ve seen in a while mostly because it’s a time machine back to childhood in the 80’s and 90’s. The stop-motion video, directed by Marc Donahue, reveals the imagination of a kid and it’s filled with everything we love coming to life: Back to the Future! Candy!…
You can tell by the googly eyes that Shaun the Sheep is an Aardman Animations production. The trailer promises the clever humor and adorable stop-motion animation that the studio (home of Wallace and Gromit) is known for ... plus, did we catch a Silence of the Lambs reference? Snort.
Trajan's Column in Rome commemorates Emperor Trajan's victory over Dacian Wars in 155 bas relief scenes. This stop-motion video outlines the current theory on how the towering structure was built.
If you haven't gotten a chance to watch Timothy Reckart's Oscar-nominated short film Head Over Heels, make some room for it in your day. It's a strange and sweet stop-motion story about two married people who have drifted apart so thoroughly, each thinks the other one lives upside down.
Pets can be an excellent way to teach kids about responsibility and how to treat living creatures, but not all pets are a great idea for kids. And when the little girl in this cheerfully macabre short film accidentally ends up with murderous piranha instead of a goldfish, things get bloody very quickly.
Well, this is one of the weirder stop-motion films we've seen (and that's saying something). Above a Christian bookstore nestled among porn shops lives a man who wants to know God — in the thoroughly biblical sense. And hey — it features the voices of Steve Coogan and Sir Ian McKellen!
The Nintendo Power Glove never really took off, but one of those gloves has gotten a second life thanks to Robot Chicken animator Dillon Markey. It may have been a clunky video game controller, but it's actually quite handy as stop-motion animation tool.
On a dying world, the cloaked personification of Death and a robot have one thing in common: They're both extremely bored. But when they finally dare to come out of hiding and meet one another, they change not only each other, but their world.
When you sit back and watch a stop-motion movie, it's easy to forget that each tiny movement is controlled by an animator's hands. But this hilariously philosophical sequence from The Boxtrolls' end credits shows the animator at work, reminding us how much he moves so that the puppets can move.
This adorable short film may be a commercial for a food product, but it's also a rather cleverly executed piece of animation. The characters were carefully placed on 1,000 individual cups of coffee, turning food and beverage into a love story.
If you haven't already seen the completely eerie stop-motion animated short Foxed!, get thyself to iTunes post haste, because it's really, really messed up. And now it's going to be an even freakier movie!
