Gecco is digging up the past with their new series of upcoming statues. These statues are all based on old school dinosaurs but not the dinosaurs we know today but the classic cinema ones from the motion capture ere. Movies like The Valley of Gwangi, King Kong and The Lost World all showcased this style […]
As part of its 2019 anime slate, Netflix also released a trailer for Rilakkuma and Kaoru, a new stop-motion series launching on April 19th, 2019.

Oscar winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is making a stop-motion feature film based on the classic tale of Pinocchio, the little wooden boy. This long gestating project just landed at Netflix, and we're pretty excited to see how it turns out. In a statement released to announce the Netflix-home of the project, del Toro said: "No art […]
Adult Swim is adding two new original animated comedy projects to their twistedly original programming slate: Vernon Chatman's surreal stop-motion series The Shivering Truth; and Andrew Koehler and Benjamin Martin's medieval fantasy series Tigtone. Although dramatically different series on just about every front, you can see from the series' synopses below that both projects clearly […]
Sometimes you go into an interview expecting one thing and you end up with something completely different. This is what happened at SDCC this year when I interviewed the cast of SpongeBob SquarePants. The Saturday morning of SDCC, I sat down with Tom Kenny (SpongeBob), Clancy Brown (Mr. Krabs), Rodger Bumpass (Squidward), and Mr. Lawrence […]
Laika's track record with stop motion is beautiful. Not least because it exists. This studio is persisting in making stop motion movie after stop motion movie while the industry at large has eschewed this craft.
Including some behind the scenes clips too.
The realities of making a movie like Frankenweenie somewhere like Disney.
As sales company K5 prepare to take Henry Selick's frozen-in-carbonite stop motion movie The Shadow King to the European Film Market, they've started listing it on their official site.
Fresh hope for one of the most wastefully halted of all film productions.
The future of stop motion animation. Okay, "a" future of stop motion animation.
Bad news, everyone.

Tim Burton, his cast and producers have some yammering to do, and some clips from Frankenweenie to show in between. Do be warned that this featurette gives away some plot specifics that have been kept pretty much under wraps until now. I hope you can see how beautifully well designed the whole thing is from […]
Including some very groovy stop motion demonstration video.
Mary Shelley might have been moved to call it Frankenweenie; or the Suburban Prometheus.
Tristan Oliver's cinematography has captured the bold, stylised colour designs of Paranorman beautifully and this web-only trailer really shows off some of the more extreme shots. We're talking about almost Wong Kar Wai richness of colour, just pouring off the screen, in some of these scenes. So watch it full screen on the biggest screen […]
The director of Coraline and The Nightmare Before Christmas just felt the axe.
Dark and dirty attic time.
We've all been there. It's always sucks.
