Tool - Prison Sex

No collection of stop motion animations would be complete without mention of the very disturbing and amazingly creative video for the song Prison Sex by Tool. The video was created and directed by Tool's guitarist Adam Jones in 1994. It was banned from MTV after only a few runs which is odd because it features no cussing, sex or violence toward any human or animal. Prison Sex features a broken doll like feature that is stalked by an alien. The song covertly deals with the broad topic of abuse.

Another amazing stop motion video that was also created by Adam Jones is for the song Sober. Check it out:

Frosty The Snowman Melted By Global Warming

I love this incredibly creative stop-motion music video thats part holiday tale and part global warming tale. The music that its set to is equally cool as the video is which uses all sorts of household items such as nicknack's, kids toys and marshmallows.

General Elektriks - Facing The Void

Here is an excellent music video for a song called Facing The Void from the group General Elekriks off their latest album Cliquety Kliqk. The video features some really cool puppets and gives a Tim Burton vibe. Its one of my all time favorite stop-motion films! You can get a high res Quicktime version here.

Trapped in the CLAUSet

An excellent stop motion of Santa going ballistic R Kelly style. If you don't like clay puppet violence or cussing or laughing uncontrollably then this video isn't for you. If you really like it then you should also check out part 2 and part 3

Tony vs Paul

Here is an excellent video featuring two actors in everyday places. This one has some very creative application of stop motion. The film is about two guys (Tony and Paul) in a stop motion battle! As I'm writing, it has more than half a million YouTube views.

Amazing Stop Motion Video -

This video gives the effect that the actor is not physically moving his body as he goes about his day. This must've taken a really long time to get right.

The Hand

Here's a stop motion of a hand drawing, skething, painting and some claymation. The artist is amazing to watch in action.
