Wow...it takes so much time to do this.. they must be very dedicated. I know that after a while I would have just said eff it and walk away.

I don`t think you realize that pretty much most major animation these days requires some use of the computer, and stop-motion is no exception. For instance, I`m pretty sure the camera hooked up for this scene was connected to a computer, and edited on one as well.

"Someone has too much spare time."

He has a job, you are on an internet forum. Who do you think has the most free time?

If you think that`s great, have a look at the famous scene from Jason and the Argonauts where Jason and his men fight undead skeletons.

Except the skeletons were done in stop motion. It took the animator (the legendary Ray Harryhausen) four MONTHS to complete four minutes of animation.

The guys that do stop motion amaze me, it is so time consuming, so complex and so demanding- when someone nails the results it`s incredibly impressive (ala Corline, Ntmre Bfr Xmas, Patrick Boivins youtube work)

I also take a traditional animation class. A 3 minute long stop motion animation? Took us A SEMESTER to make. And it wasn`t even all that great. D:

You also have to consider that to get Coraline`s facial features, they have to change her face EVERY FRAME too, and therefore need a different face-mask-thing for each frame if you want her facial reactions to be smooth. OMG.

I haven`t seen the movie yet.

But I`ve watched the NMB4XM making of, and it`s pretty bad ass to see how they set up everything.

I took a traditional animation class in college and made a short 30 second stop motion film... it really is super tedious.

I think it would be fun. All that work and you get to see what you have done in the end. To think of moving every detail is crazy

Moving things by just a tiny amount is a boring way to make money.
