I alwyas find gold when I browse through vimeo and today was no exception when I landed on a “Vimeo Staff Pick”. I sat back and watched an amazing stop motion animation called Shugo Tokumaru by Kijek / Adamski.

Stop Motion Masterpiece Shugo Tokumaru by Kijek and Adamksi


It’s always amazes me how much time animators and illustrators take to perfect their project and this piece definitely had to take lots of time and a whole lot more of patience. They created 2000 silhouettes from PVC plates by using a computer controlled cutter…but have a look at the “Making of” video to see how they did it, definitely worth a watch!
