Stop motion (also known as stop frame) is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. Dolls with movable joints or clay figures are often used in stop motion for their ease of repositioning. Stop motion animation using plasticine is called clay animation or "clay-mation". Not all stop motion requires figures or models; many stop motion films can involve using humans, household appliances and other things for comedic effect. Stop motion using objects is sometimes referred to as object animation.
Spontaneous and fascinating, the animated video for The Japanese Popstars’ “Let Go” will make you want to take off, clean and scrub your eyeballs. This is dirty, this is techno, this is awesome! The technique somewhat reminds me of Blu’s stop motion graffiti animation, which you guys should check out, if you haven’t already.
