2. Stop Frame (stop motion)

Stop frame animation or stop motion what ever you call it has been used throughout the media spectrum such as movies, tv shows and adverts. Movies like the nightmare before christmas / fantastic mr fox, tv shows like Wallace and Gromit / shawn the sheep and adverts like the target girl dreaming ad. These types of animation set apart from the norm as the long time to create the frame by frame animation is a tedious process to make and isn’t done as much as.
