The wikli dose / Week 05: “The art of stop motion!”

By August 31, 2016The Wikli Dose

Welcome to the wikli dose. This week we tap into the wonderful world of stop motion, an animation technique that consists of moving puppets and rigs in small increments between individually photographed frames. Click and move!

Below a selection of awesome animations that use these techniques to tell their stories!

Even though stop-motion sounds to many as a primitive animation technique, it kept on growing, taking the technological train to refine and perfect its methods.
But whether using the best and most advanced rigs and cameras or something as simple as your phone, it requires some serious skills to produce a top notch animation!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s selection and learned a little more about animation!

Stay tuned for some awesome videos every Wednesday
