Magic Clay, a stop motion short by Alexander Unger, a.k.a. Guldies. How do you make an animated short like this one? Unger writes:

Shot with a Canon EOS 600D. 1800 still pictures, 24 FPS and animated in Dragonframe. I used Sony Vegas for editing. Sound effects recorded with a Blue Yeti and some were dowloaded from Freesound(dot)org. I mixed cernit clay with plastilina to get a colorful/shiny/non sticky clay to work with!

Watch this extended walk through to go behind the scenes:

Follow this with Ray Harryhausen’s Mother Goose Stories (1946), and more stop motion shorts.
