Here are some of my favorite stop-motion videos on YouTube.


I'll probably post more when I get a chance.

I thought others might want to post some of their favorite stop-motion videos too.

OK, here are some more …

Pete Peterson was an incredibly talented animator. Even with his physical disability he did some beautiful work. It's a shame that he and O'brien didn't get another shot at bigger films. The effects in Black Scorpion are far superior to those in the movie Them; but in general Them is the better all round film.

Yes, Pete sounds like he was an amazing guy …

Here's a couple of my favorites by Tim Hittle

... and one more, not on youtube but vimeo

The Quiet Life from Timothy Hittle on Vimeo.

Timothy Hittle does some amazing work. The amount of character he gets out of his simple figures is astounding. And I love the kluged together look of Jay Clay's world.

Those look cool Jeff.

Great stuff...

Here is an old Czech short that is one of my personal favorites...

That That was cool. I wonder how they approached tie downs with a set that was that complex?

In some of the early shots as he's just starting to climb the stairs you get a hint of color/tint change on the ground after he lifts his foot up and takes a step. I'm assuming that's the paint drying as they covered up a tie-down hole with clay or plaster and then painted it to match the set. I suspect they must have used a variety of different length bolts - short ones for the areas where the stairs are shallow, big long ones for the taller steps. Although how they managed it when he crossed the bridges is something of a mystery. Prolly the slightly high angle was enough to hide the bolts underneath the bridge. Or....?  The final sequence looks like it was just the figure balanced on the steps with nothing holding him down. 

It would have been interesting to see the underside of the set...was it solid, or basically a "hollow" inside-out version of the stairs on top?

Very nice film. Mike/a.k.a. strider must be salivating.

I've never seen the CyKong clips, awesome! but no stop-mo list can be complete without Achillies, Next and Screen Play ... all by the amazing Barry Purves.

Sorry Roger, didn't mean to hijack your thread, but there's just so much beautiful and inspiring work out there ... Kawamoto's, Sleeping Beauty
