Modern Stop-Motion Music Videos

In celebration of the release of the new LomoKino, I've collected some examples of what I think are very cool music videos made with stop-motion video. Check out what music and images combined can create!

The White Stripes – Fell in Love with a Girl
A classic tale of love and loss, as told by LEGO bricks and Jack and Meg White. I used to spend hours as a child acting out scenes like this with my LEGOs, this video has always been one of my favorite videos of all times.

Breakbot – Baby I’m Yours
Done entirely in watercolor, this dance-y track from French House artist Breakbot, which features vocals by Irfane, presents a fluid dreamworld. Using over 2,000 watercolor paintings, take a futuristic-retro journey into space and love.

OK Go – End Love
OK Go is known for their very creative music videos, and this particular video involves them using stop motion to imitate fairly common music video dance styles, and then do some impossible-seeming movements. As far as technical execution is concerned, this one definitely took a lot of time to complete (considering it shows the passing of a full day).

Fleet Foxes – Mykonos
In this geometrically inclined, origami-inspired music video, paper imitates nature and flows across an artificial landscape. The odd artificial lighting seems to accentuate the artificiality and also the texture of the different papers.

Do you know any other cool music videos using stop-motion techniques? Feel free to share them in the comments section so we can all explore the possibilities of stop-motion together and get inspired.

Editor’s Note: You may also want to check out the most recent PYHOF featuring Here We Go Magic for more groovy tunes with analogue goodness!

    I think Guster's "Do You Love Me" fits in this post.

    Great videos, but I think you forgot about one of the best stop motion video ever made, entirely made out of Jelly Beans, and it took 22 moths to make! Its by the wonderful Kina Grannis - In Your arms of course this is my opinion(: how about you all take a look for yourself.

    That Kinna Granis music video is really cool! I wish I had known about it before I wrote this article, I was just doing it based on music I knew already.
