Stop Motion

So I was searching for King Crimson on youtube and I was pretty dissapointed to see that they are not as popular as they should be, but oh well, at least I found this stop motion movie with Epitaph as the background sound... I was like oh nice! however the clip was shorter than the song so the person who did this had to loop it a little so after that I was like... aw damn! Now I'm on a quest to find the original video.


I really like stop motion short clips, the amount of work needed to make one of them is outstanding. So for now I'm going to share a few with you, starting with Tim Burton's (Nuff said) Vincent: 


The Sand Castle (Le Chateu de Sable) This one is amazing because they use sand as a central element, one wich is really hard to manage:


The Captain's Daughter (КАПИТАНСКАЯ ДОЧКА) This one is longer (around 30 mins) but couldn't find it with subs *sighs*, anyways here is the first part, and if somehow you understand russian or if you are simply don't care the next parts are here and here. It is based on the novel with the same name:
