There’s been a truly impressive amount of stop-motion flying around the interwebs lately. I’m always awed by the amount of time and energy it takes to create something in this medium, not to mention the playful and often powerful effect of going frame-by-frame. Now that there’s an abundance of stop-motion software, and even a new iPhone app, StopMotion Recorder, perhaps we can all contribute. In the meantime, here are some recent notables that caught my attention:

Bowerbirds “In Our Talons” from Alan Poon on Vimeo.

BIG BANG BIG BOOM – the new wall-painted animation by BLU from blu on Vimeo.

And you’ll have to forgive me for squeaking this one in, it’s not stop-motion, but it is composed from stills! (And it makes my heart happy.)

This is Japan! from Eric Testroete on Vimeo.

Highlights from our recent archives. What are some of your favorite stop-motion creations?

    After watching some great stop motion movies my 4 year old son wanted to know how to make them, I decided doing was better than explaining, helped him set up and started him off and this is the finished masterpiece :o)

    Cool selection. “In our talons” is massive. I’m currently compiling a playlist with the best stop motion music videos on youtube, it has some really inspiring “hidden gems”. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=691891EBC99A3804

    Hi jojoebi! We’d love to see your son’s stop motion efforts, but the link does not seem to be working. Do you mind checking and resending? Thanks!
