Claymation is Awesome.

Claymation is just awesome.

I’d love to do some claymation (it’s a stop motion animation by using clay). However, I had hell of a time doing stop motion animation for my animation class back in college, and I’m still a little bit traumatized by all the things that happened back then. However, it’s still an awesome thing and to do it, you need a lot, and I mean A LOT of patience for it because you’d be taking thousands and thousands of pictures, and you need to change the clay frame by frame. It’s a lot of work, but once it’s done, it’s so awesome.

Recently I bought Evil Dead bluray and when I was searching for evil dead stuff on youtube, I found this awesome claymation of Evil Dead which summarizes the movie in just 60 seconds. Check it out!

Here’s one with The Exorcist. So funny.

Check out leehardcastle and his awesome claymations on youtube!
Maybe one day I’d be daring enough to try claymation.. a simple one. I just need some lighting and good quality camera with tripod.
