We spoke to him about all that and more at SDCC!

  4. We Could Watch This 3D Printed Stop Motion Bear All Day And We Will

    And you can't stop us!

    A lot of people are worried that CGI will replace stop motion animation because it's less time-consuming and ultimately less expensive. If this little guy is any indication, however, then stop motion will never go away, because there will always be someone willing to put in a ridiculous amount of effort to make it happen.

  5. This Video Reminds Us All That Ewoks Are Actually Vicious Killers, Adorable Vicious Killers

    Just be glad C3PO was around to intervene.

    Ewoks are adorable, and they helped the rebels defeat the Empire at the battle of Endor. That makes it pretty easy to forget that they were totally planning to kill and eat Han, Luke, and Chewbacca before they thought C3PO was their god. At least that's the thesis of the latest LEGO stop-motion video by the Brotherhood Workshop.

  9. Here’s a Stop-Motion Film Made Entirely From Shifting Atoms Around

    Here's a fun fact about IBM's research on storing data atom by atom -- sometimes, it gets really boring. Our latest evidence for this phenomenon is that the folks working on the project feel like making the world's tiniest stop-motion film is a better use of their time, and I'm not going to say that they're wrong.

    YouTube is rife with a plethora of stop motion LEGO films, ranging from the thoroughly entertaining to outright abysmal. Still, a majority of them aren't any longer than 10 minutes since not everybody is willing to devote hours of their time tediously making small LEGO figurines move across a table. Though we can't speak for the dedicated folks behind the feature length fan film Castlevania IV: Legend of Vania.
