Stop-motion videography has reportedly been a method of film-making for almost 120 years! With it being such an established method, you could be forgiven for believing that it is a technique only used in the days of pre-computer animation. Whilst what may come to mind are film classics such as ‘King Kong’ (1933) or ‘Jason and the Argonauts’ (1963), stop-motion animation has been used for recent major blockbuster hits such as Shaun the Sheep (2015).
