Weekend Timekiller – Stop-Motion Videos

June 19, 2010

1. Post-It Mario Brothers (1:25) – created by a group of Japanese students for bunkasai, the annual school festivals.

2. “Noitulove” (0:51) – Guinness ad created by Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO.  Title is “evolution” spelled backwards.  This won the 2006 Grand Prize at the Cannes Lions Advertising Festival.

3. The Original Human Tetris Performance (2:38) – Created by Guillaume Reymond

4. Clay Chess Match (1:55) – Created by Riccardo Crocetta

5. White Stripes: The Hardest Button to Button (3:38) – Directed by Michelle Gondry, 2003. Fell in Love with a Girl is another good choice for Gondry/Stripes/stop-motion, but I’m going with Hardest Button since it’s been parodied on the Simpsons. Gondry also did the Stripes videos for The Denial Twist (with Conan O’Brien) and Dead Leaves & the Dirty Ground.

6. A Combo Work by Blu and David Ellis (8:11) – Graffiti stop-motion that watches like a combination of Banksy, Monty Python Animations, and Bill Plympton.

Here’s a Wikipedia list of other short films and music videos that use pixilation animation.
