The First Stop Motion Animation - Joan Lennon

Coraline, The Box Trolls, Wallace and Gromit, A Town Called Panic, The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! Kubo and the Two Strings, Isle of Dogs, and so many more - stop motion animation films are going from strength to strength in the 21st century.  Where did it all begin?  We have the multi-talented Willis O'Brien to thank, and here is his stop motion film from 1917, The Dinosaur and the Missing Link.  Enjoy!

This is awesome! I prefer to watch them with the volume turned down, because I play piano, and that awful plonking background music drives me crazy. Too bad they didn't use classical music...

Really enjoyed that, at the end of a long day of wretched admin. Thank you, Joan.
