Every now and then I come across piece of work that makes me jealous – jealous because I wish I had done it.

This is a beautifully minimalist project from one of my favourite designer/animators. The 2D character work is really well done and the sparse environments are perfect. Plus it’s a good cause to boot.

More of his work here.

Some of my favourite stop-motion pieces


We’ll start off with a music video that inspired me to do my own stop motion work. It’s the Bubblicious music video from Rex The Dog. I love the simple DIY look & feel and the way the ‘behind-the-scenes’ is worked into the narrative showing off the process and making it even more interesting. Really nice work.

Much Better Now

Next is another piece that brings along a smile from Salon Alpin, a Portuguese studio. This integrates a 3D character into a stop motion background. The result is seamless and looks like loads of painstaking effort. It pays off though…


This one’s a classic and remarkable since it’s a student project. From Bang-yao Liu.

Time to Go

One last one I came across recently: a beautiful piece from Melbourne-based studio Oh Yeah Wow for Wax Tailor: ‘Time To Go’. Strong concept, smoothly executed.

Hmmm, time to get out my Nikon and make some puppets…
