My Favorite Kind of Motion is Stop Motion

According to Wikipedia Stop Motion is, "an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence."

A lot of stop motion is used for commercials and sometimes even for movies (think Chicken Run). I personally love the effect and really want to try to do my own stop motion short one of these days. I even have a Fleet Foxes song in mind that I may use for inspiration. Anyways, here are some little shorts that are sure to make you grab your camera and move items in your room at very small increments for many hours (while being a very awesome art form it is also a very painstaking one). Enjoy!!
