10 Amazing and Creative Stop Motion Videos for your Inspiration


Inspirational stop motion videos I’m a big fan of Stop Motion videos. The possibilities are literally endless and this technique really does allow room for your creativity to blossom. In basic terms, the process of stop motion is taking a still frame of an object, moving the object a bit, and taking another frame. Repeat this process, hundreds or thousands of times and you have a stop motion video!

The clips I have featured below truly are unbelievable examples of creative art and really do deserve your time.

Her Morning Elegance / Oren Lavie

This is the most viewed stop motion video on YouTube and rightly so. It’s one of the best examples I’ve seen that makes full use of the stop motion technique, with a number of sequences that would only be possible if done in stop motion.

Western Spaghetti by PES

This has become one of the most popular stop motion videos about, as it does a fantastic job of showing what can be done using stop motion that other techniques would not be able to achieve.

Rymdreglage – 8-bit trip

1500 hours of moving legobricks and taking photos of them. Enjoy.

Human Skateboard

Short, fun, and again, a great example of the benefits of stop motion.

Stop motion with wolf and pig

Now this is truly unique. A stop motion within a stop motion – I can’t even begin to fathom the amount of time that must have been spent putting this together.

Corey and Rachel’s Wedding Invitation

The video took about 5 months overall to make; 1 month to learn how to do stop motion and about 4 months to actually shoot and edit the video of over 5,500 pictures taken.

Human Tetris

Another example of a stop motion video that has become extremely popular, despite the fact that it’s a single shot of one room. A single shot becomes a blank canvas to work with when it comes to stop motion.

Big Bang Big Boom

An unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life and how it could probably end. This is a long one but it could be the pick of the lot. Sit back for 10 minutes and gaze in amazement at this masterpiece.

Clay Chess

This is special. The amount of thought, talent and skill that has gone into this is incredible and the clay modelling is just superb.

Eatliz – Lose This Child

This took 6 months work and over 5000 frames. The number of frames do not tell the whole story in this case though, as this film brings sand sculptures to life, which is no quick task!

All of these clips deserve a wider audience! So do them a favour and share this article with your friends and followers!
