X-Men cartoon intro re-created in stop motion with action figures

Today we launched a new Stop Motion! With the 20th anniversary of the early 90’s X-Men cartoon, we had to recreate the intro with action figures! We tried to stay as true to the original as possible, but added a few of our own personal touches to it! :) With 4 months of work and over 4,000 individual photos here is what we came up with!

1992 X-Men Stop Motion Tribute

Short film of the day: “Plot-oon”

A stop motion gem I came across, about a group of green plastic soldiers traversing the dangerous lengths of a garden.

Gorgeous stop motion animated version of the Dark Knight Rises trailer done with toys

But not just any toys, Hot Toys figures, known for their incredible quality and life-like-ness. 


Saturday morning cartoons: “Non Stop Ninja Motion”

Each frame is a photograph. This was shot in one day from sunrise to sunset. 1000 pictures. 1000 martial arts tricks. 1 martial arts tricker.

The original trailer for Prometheus, made out of paper

Created by Travis Betz, this might be the scariest paper sci-fi trailer you’ll see today.

Awesome stop-motion of the day: “The Joy of Books”

"After organizing our bookshelf almost a year ago, my wife and I (Sean Ohlenkamp) decided to take it to the next level. We spent many sleepless nights moving, stacking, and animating books at Type bookstore in Toronto (883 Queen Street West, (416) 366-8973)."


Awesome Indiana Jones action figure stop motion is awesome

Animator Jeff Gurwood remade the opening six minutes of Raiders of the Lost Ark, including the famous boulder escape scene, entirely in stop motion. The whole thing took six months using Hasbro Indiana Jones action figures.


Sunday afternoon ice skating stop motion

Pulled pics from Sunday’s trip downtown and was inspired to make my first (very short) stop motion video.

An awesome stop motion history of the world

It took Kalle Mattson, Kevin Parry, and friends over six months to create this cute stop motion short, a lot shorter than the time-frame covered in the video! Watch as history is told via illustrated paper, on an ever turning globe that brings it all back around again.


Morning music videos: The Ngheims “Dum Dum Dah Dah”

After 4 months of production and over 8,000 photos, we launched an Arcade themed Music Video using action figures to create a early 90’s style game!

Awesome Lego short of the day: Bricks of War

I fully support more of this sort of thing. Marcus Fenix looks great as a little Lego badass, and I’m sure a Lego GoW would be a hell of a lot more fun than those other Lego games. Not that the other Lego games are bad, it’s just that whether it’s Harry Potter, Batman, Star Wars or Indiana Jones, it’s pretty much the same damn game.
