Stop motion is an animation technique. It records motion by filming one frame at a time while moving a physical object between the frames. The finished product on-screen can give motion to inanimate objects. The technique is often used to create children's films with puppets and clay figurines. But stop motion is also a popular technique for serious adult drama films as well as music videos. Find out the very best stop motion animation movies here in our gallery!
