Stop-Motion Animation

So. For my final project in my English Seminar course, I have to make an "Artist's Edition". Basically we have to do something with technology. While the instructions for the project were incredibly vague, I knew from the start I wanted to do something with stop-motion animation. I've always loved the whimsical nature that comes along with this type of film-making, so I've started doing research on the topic.

In celebration of my project (that I should probably start working on), here are a few of my favorite videos of stop-motion animation.

Video #5: (this one is not 100% stop-motion - but if you like how it looks, go rent The Science of Sleep

And of course, my favorite Christmas movie:

I've seen all of these already. I guess I love stop motion animation too. Thanks for the kind words re: our photos. Good luck with yours - they were so much fun to do!
