The role of stop-motion animation

In its beginning stop-motion animation was typically used in the portrayal of stories that would appeal to all audiences, This was of course made popular in later years by such animators as George pal, Emile Cohl and Willis O’Brien. The early role of stop-motion animation was to make objects appear to move as if by magic. In recent years stop-motion animation has been adapted for other purposes such as advertising and commercial entertainment. Stop-motion animation allows the viewer to be submerged into another world all together and it is limited only by human imagination , boundless in its ability to recreate reality. The reason that stop- motion animation is so appealing is because it has a universal appeal meaning that it is appreciated by everyone, it is a medium where anything is possible.
Different types of stop- motion animation
Stop motion is an animation technique that makes a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved ever so slightly between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. There are several different types of stop motion animation these are object animation, puppet animation, claymation and pixilation.
