Music video for Moving On by James is a wonderful stop-motion video from BAFTA-nominated animator, writer, and director Ainslie Henderson. The video depicts the story of life and death, told with characters made of yellow yarn.
Taking a page out of Ken Block’s awesome Gymkhana, Ford has its own Christmas video with ‘Snowkhana’. Quite like last year’s video, this year’s Snowkhana is a stop motion animation with toys, featuring Mental Block taking the wheel of a 1:64 scale Ford Fiesta. Mr. Mental Block then proceeds to try out stunts, toeing the line of Ken Block, while other cars and characters make cameos. Hit ahead for the last year’s video, this year’s video is up top.
Artist Anders Ramsell used 12,597 paintings to create this stop motion telling of Blade Runner with water colors. Each painting measures 1.5 cm by 3 cm and were stacked together for the video that runs for 35 minutes.
Tissue Animals is a stop motion animation by Japanese tissue manufacturer Nepia. The idea was to show that the manufacturer is mindful of the environment and dedicated to the cause of sustainable forests, conserving the ecosystem, and generating employment. A great way for a tissue manufacturer to show their concern for their environment, considering that their business relies on cutting down trees for the product is to show frolicking animals and ecosystems. And perhaps hope that the message gets across through the video.
Two sequences from Dr. Strangelove presented as Lego stop-motion animations that are done pretty well.
Moves from both sides may not be the smartest in this game of chess, but that isn’t the point. The beauty in this stop-motion clay animation lies in the movement of the pieces, there battles and their victories. Watch the video to see pegasus, unicorns and a queen that hunts its prey like a shark.
This spectacular stop-motion animation has been created by WWF as means to promote the Earth Hour (26 March). Don’t forget to switch off those lights.
