Stop Motion

14 May

A quick entry today with a tribute to stop motion photography. Frame by frame, stop action, whatever you call it, stop motion dates back over 100 years. It is the art of creating the appearance of motion through a series of photographs. Wallace and Grommet, Coraline, Corpse Bride, and even that 1964 Rudolph Christmas special we all remember as kids were all created using stop motion animation. Typically the process uses inanimate objects, making them come alive, but the technique can be used with people as well, and here are a couple of my favorites. Check them out.
