Best stop motion videos part I – Patrick Boivin

Maybe you’ve seen the movie Fantastic Mr. Fox. If not, here’s the preview

I haven’t seen it myself, but that’s cause I’ve been spending most of my time finding great videos for this post, so there.

10 bizarre uses for Post-it notes

Fantastic Mr. Fox shows off some of the latest technologies and techniques of stop motion animation, an art form/film technique that started in 1898 in The Humpty Dumpty Circus created by Albert E. Smith and J. Stuart Blackton.

Stop motion animation also saw heavy use in George Lucas’ Star Wars Trilogy. The Tauntauns and AT-AT walkers were all animated using this technique. Other more recent notable movies include The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, and Coraline, all directed by Henry Selick. I saw Coraline on the plan on my way back from Manila. It was good, but creeped me out a bit.

Enough with the history lesson, let’s get to the videos!
