Last Sunday while I was flipping through YouTube videos, I came across some short films that really caught my eye. And nope – cute kitties and people falling were not involved.
Over the last few years, YouTube has grown a wide community of content creators who cover a wide variety of formats. From a YouTube search, you can find thousands of videos that go from news shows and comedy skits to users sharing their personal everyday lives on “daily vlogs”.
And of course, my recent discovery – a group of very creative short film makers that kept me craving for more of their work. For today’s post, I decided to put together a Top 10 list (admit it, we all like Top 10 lists!) of my personal favorite “stop-motion” short films.
Check them out:
10. Food about you by AlexandreDUBOSC
9. Post-it Note Arcade by Michael Birken
8. Moleskine Planners by Rogier Wieland
7. Sweet Dreams by kirstenlepore
6. Whiteboard Animation: The Marker Maker by Jonny Lawrence
5. Lego Arcade by MlCHAELHlCKOX
