Stop motion film-making is a labor of love, so consider this collection of 10 amazing mini stop motion movies a love song to the format.
Encompassing music, graffiti, photography, computer gaming and even horror, these YouTube videos show off some inspiring creativity and represent hours and hours of work.
Have a browse through our top picks and then let us know your favorite stop motion movies in the comments below.
1. Stop Motion With Wolf And Pig
This much-emulated video shows just what you can create with a camera, your imagination and a papier-mâché pig.
2. MUTO a Wall-Painted Animation by BLU
Watching this “ambiguous animation painted on public walls,” you soon forget you’re seeing stitched together images of graffiti and lose yourself in the mesmerizing mutations.
3. DEADLINE Post-It Stop Motion
Bang-yao Liu’s final college project takes the Post-It notes that were haunting him over ever-approaching deadlines and makes them the star of the show.
4. T-SHIRT WAR!!
Now with a McDonald’s/Coke ad under their belts (along with, we presume, wads of cash) “internetainers” Rhett and Link live up to their made-up-word job titles with this amusing vid.
5. Punch Drysdale
Featuring another duo, this clip is the intro video for sketch comedy troupe punchDRYSDALE’s comedy videos, but it also works well as a standalone satire of modern life.
6. Monogrenade – Ce Soir
This spell-binding video accompanies Montreal group Monogrenade’s single “Ce Soir” and was created by award-winning cinematographer Christophe Collette entirely in stop motion.
7. Game Over by PES
The stop motion artist known simply as “PES” is a genius in the field with a stack of YouTube hits. This retro game themed video takes everyday objects and recreates classic titles we all know and love.
8. Stop Motion Rubik’s Cube
As the number of videos on the topic will confirm, the humble Rubik’s Cube is ripe for some stop motion action, but none do it better than the creator of this clip with its funky soundtrack and muted colors.
9. Her Morning Elegance / Oren Lavie
A beautiful video for a beautiful song, this video is comprised of 2,096 still frames.
10. Crooked Rot
From the deliciously dark mind of David Firth (who also gave us the Salad Fingers animated YouTube series) this video illustrates that not all stop motion is, or needs be, sweet and light.
BONUS: Ooh Yeah – Dancing Headphones
Relegated to bonus status here, as it’s not available on YouTube, Beshart’s dancing headphones are like the Jackson Five of the musical headgear world and crank out some great moves, along with a little help from a cardboard Moby.
