Stop motion refers to an animation technique that involves capturing slight modifications of physical objects to give the illusion of it moving on its own. Being something that sprang from the late 19th century, it is a technique that requires patience, due to the limitations of the medium and the processes taken in developing the frame-to-frame shots. This process was well utilised during that time with impressive outcomes from early pioneers like Eadweard J. Muybridge.
Displayed below are two of his famous works:
Although Stop motion may not lie in my line of skills, I do admire the accuracy and patience of the animators, being able to maintain the motivation throughout the whole project. So now I’m presenting … Five Incredibly Creative Stop Motion Animations
An amazing collaborative project by youtube users RhettandLink, Joe Penna(aka MysteryGuitarMan) and Billy Reid(aka VeryTasteful) done for McDonalds and Coca-Cola
A brilliant project that involved emulation a Tetris game using real human beings. Directed by Swiss artist Guillaume REYMOND of NotSoNoisy Creative Agency. They also have other animations to do with Pacman, Pong, Pole Position and Space Invaders.
Might as well show you the one they did with Pole Position:
Another cool animation I found on Vimeo. He seems to have done the frames the other way round, which I find to be an great achievement.
A similar take on The Original Human Tetris, featuring more classic games like Centipede, Galaga and more.
