Yes it is stop motion despite looking verrrry good. I do actually wonder if some software was involved because that animation was super smooth.

yeah, it's completely subjective so i wouldn't take my opinion any more seriously than you take anyone else's...but yeah, it's kinda hard to explain things like CG aesthetics and what works and what doesn't and what should work...it starts to get really complicated. but basically, i would've preferred that short to (1) be a little bit shorter, and (2) utilize more traditional stop-motion techniques rather than just taking the cheaper, easier way out and fixing it in post. but that's just me, the guy who spent 3-4 weeks cutting shit out of magazines with an Xacto knife and painstakingly moving them frame-by-frame...maybe i'm the dumb one.

Kidding. Still, the transformers shirt there is incredible.
It does seem impossible that the short is hand moved stop motion,since it is so smooth. I am curious to know the truth.

here's what i made in my animation production class today...we were trying out Dragonframe connected to Canon t3i's on rostrum set-ups, where the camera is tilted frontwards and suspended so all action can go on underneath it...it gives everything a flat sorta look, like South Park or Terry Gilliam cutout animations...we used various gummy creatures.

tisk tisk tisk. i've been on this thread championing the devotion of visionary animators working frame by frame to achieve their vision, not reusable computer models being used heartlessly by swarming teams of South Koreans doing the animation industry's equivalent of assembly-line work in a factory.
i do love me some CG animation, and i'm not always against it -- but it is weird when shows like FG that used to be animated on cels stop...being animated on cels, yet still opt to keep the visual style as if they were animating the show on cels like classic Hanna-Barbara shit.

Both are from Rovio. Bad Piggies, the cartoon series, tho made nowish, make the finished product look like 1970s claymation. Also Rovio, they are doing a Angry Birds Transformers game and the promo looks exactly like the 80s cartoon.

Also, check what they did for their transformers game. It's exactly like the 80s cartoon. I love it.

we just finished our unit on line animation last week, and as part of the curriculum we had to watch some Hertzfeldt films...notably Billy's Balloon

here's another one of my final projects from this last semester. it's working around the same themes as the other live-action one i posted in the Films thread, but in this case it's my interpretation of the story of the creation of Adam from the Book of Genesis.
obviously it's animated.
