I wanted this video to be even longer, it’s so good! Ynon Lan walked around NYC and made these fantastic little stop-motion pieces stitching together photos of things he saw over and over: taxis, brownstones, even Starbucks. Watch “Still NYC” below.
Stop-Motion Animator Dillon Markey Transforms the Nintendo Power Glove into Something Actually Useful
Dillon Markey, an animator for Robot Chicken and PES (he co-animated that incredible short “Fresh Guacamole”), took an old Nintendo Power Glove and turned it into the ultimate tool for making stop-motion animations! I thought this was going to be a joke, but it is entirely real and practical (okay, minus the sound effect). How long until this ends up on Kickstarter?
Watch the video below.
You can now watch animator Mikey Please’s stunning stop-motion film “Marilyn Myller” in its entirety! I’d been waiting what seemed like forever to see this. You might remember Mikey’s previous film “The Eagleman Stag” which was also made from thousands of handmade foam models. Watch the film below!
Becky & Joe are the creators of “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared”, a brilliant video series that mixes live action, stop motion, 2d animation, puppetry, learning, and a touch of pure evil. You can see the first two episodes here and here. They’ve just announced plans to make several more episodes and would love to do it independently so they can keep the creative spirit of the show alive.

One of the most talented artists I know, Kirsten Lepore, has finally released her CalArts graduate thesis film and it is incredible. “Move Mountain” is a masterpiece, a wonderful story about healing, expertly told and gorgeously animated. This is what it looks like when a filmmaker has complete control of her craft.
I interviewed Kirsten last year and we talked about her previous films, and briefly about how a song by The Knife kinda inspired “Move Mountain” (read the interview here). She remains one of only a few people to ever guest post on Booooooom, and her post of hand drawn animations is still one of my favourites in the history of this site (see it here).
Check out those links, turn up your speakers, turn down your lights, and enjoy her film below!
