Stop-Motion Sundays 081212

stopMotionsundays

This Column is dedicated to our love of Stop-Motion animation.  From the pioneers like Ray Harryhausen (Sinbad, Clash of the Titans), to the new masters such as Henry Selick (Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline) and Nick Park (Wallace and Gromit). Each Sunday we will feature some of the coolest and innovative stop-motion videos that we find around the interwebs. We may even provide some pieces of our own. Little known fact about CynicNerd and I, is that in High School we used to make Lego movies so often that we didn’t study for our Chemistry finals!   We were a bit obsessed back in the day, but I think it’s still carried on with us throughout the years, and we’d like to share our love of the genre with you guys!

So, below is a video brought to you by the people over at MIWIM featuring an amazing battle betwixt Cloud and Sepiroth from Final Fantasy VII. It’s over 7mins long and it kicks ass. Enjoy!

Stop-Motion Sundays: Halloween Edition- Michael Meyers vs Jason

Just to warn you, this video is pretty low quality. The person who shot it, didn’t know how to keep the camera in place, so the angles keep shifting around. Plus, he didn’t use that much light, so the video is also ...
