The Eagleman Stag / Stop-motion animation by Mikey Please

The Eagleman Stag stop-motion animation by Mikey Please
OH MY GOD. This is one of the most incredible animations I have ever seen. Mikey Please sent me over a link to his latest film “The Eagleman Stag” and it is a masterpiece. What you are about to see is not a computer animation, it’s a stop-motion animation using thousands of handmade foam models.

Watch the entire film below!


And a peek behind the scenes, here.

    That was absolutely amazing! I can’t imagine how difficult and time consuming that was to make such a seamless animation out of those foam models.

    It’s unbelievably beautiful. There’s something lacking in the writing (or the voice acting maybe?), I feel like it dosent reach its full potential w/r/t saying meaningful things with more clarity and poignany about the isolation of genius and the quest for knowledge, or the inherent antisocialness of people whose driving motivation in life is esothereic knowledge, or something. But holy hell! What beauty! What skill! What effort! So visually lush within it’s chosen constraints…
