Stop motion has always been a bit of a guilty plesure of mine, I love to watch it and love to do it, although it take absolutely forever to get even the smallest of shots
the outcome can be truly fantastic as shown in this video below.
I love how the characters are interacting with the piece as well instead of it just being flat they push its depth and make it more interesting. This interaction of characters and 3D objects appearing to morph out of the piece really gives it charm and it stands out a lot. Most stop motion pieces similar to this only have the visual of the piece itself but with this one they have real objects, people, fire, the cameras especially using flash cuts and jump ins to exaggerate the feel and vibe of the music.
