While I have never done any myself, I believe claymation is one of the coolest forms of animation out there. Basically, it is a form of animation using either clay or this material called plasticine, which has been around since the early 1900s. In claymation production, the artist will sculpt the characters out of either the clay or plasticine, while also using wire molds underneath to support the sculpture. Shooting claymation is extremely tedious and time consuming. A full length 90 minute feature film using claymation would require roughly 64,800 stops to change the figures for the frames. Notable claymation films include Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, and More.
