Life-sized stop motion: Sorry I’m Late

Shooting stop-motion straight down on the ground is such a great way to animate. Aardman Studio’s recently released Gulp, a sponsored short that was filmed on “the world’s largest stop-motion animation set.”

Sorry I’m Late, by Tomas Mankovsky in 2009 (above), is another fun (and more home-grown/tangible) endeavor. Shot in an auditorium in London — with a lot of tests, and trial and error — you can see just how they put it all together here: sorry-im-late.com.
