We’re Taking Stop Motion Back

So the last time you thought you saw some awesome stop motion was one of the following:

1. Badass Ray Harryhausen monsters.

2. The OG King Kong.

3. The EPIC Rebel Defeat at the Battle of Hoth

But if you don’t know what a VHS is you might not be familiar with the ancient art of stop motion.

A relic of a forgotten age

You probably think the scene in Empire is just some old school CG or something stupid. Well guess what? IT’S NOT!! Someone built some badass AT-ATs and Tauntauns, shot them one frame at a time and painstakingly moved them through their actions!! (I’m guessing the current instant gratification generation is thinking “What does painstakingly mean?”) What if someone thought to do an AWESOME fight with stop motion. Someone with fighting skills. Someone who could actually do a cool fight instead of most of the stop motion crap adrift in the sea of mediocrity that is YouTube. Someone like… the EMC Monkeys. Well, then you might end up something you could enjoy watching! So here it is

…. enjoy watching!

Learn well young ones. Stop motion can be a thing of beauty… or hilarity.

So….

What’s your favorite stop motion moment?

The Battle of Hoth!!!!
