Marcel Schindler brings the work of Hemingway to life via some clever stop motion. That wasn’t a complete sentence. Sorry Hemingway. Damn it another incomplete sentence. There I go again.

Webster Colcord is a master of all things animated, both analog and digital. He’s worked on Iron Man, Minority Report, and Live Free or Die Hard. However, stop-motion animation is definitely where his skills shine. Mad Doctors of Borneo is a series he started way back in 1993. He says he’ll probably finish it when he retires. If so, I hope he plans on retiring soon. I’d love to see more.

A 7 minute animated film by Isaac King that uses both stop motion and traditional animation.

“The term ‘second hand’ refers to the ticking hand on a clock; it also describes re-used items. Would you rather save time? Or save stuff? This film examines the imbalance and waste created by these modern obsessions.”

Jeff Hamada at Booooooom really wanted to share this short film stop motion video created by Kirsten Lepore. It really is a beautiful little bit of film and it’s so well done that you stop considering the technical difficulty of creating the animation mid-way through because it’s such an emotive piece of work. It’s a simple idea and story but how it’s accomplished really elevates it to the level of art. Beautiful.

‘Photocopy Romance’ is the latest music video put together by Neverhide Films. It’s a great video and serves as a very ingenuitive piece of stop motion animation. Neverhide took care to thoroughly document the experience and you can see some great ‘making of’ images in their Flickr-folio.
