Stop Motion Pizza
I liked this video because it was simple but it had a good idea behind it. It also gave me a insight on what the making of this company's pizza and how they deliver it is.

I really like this because you can tell what everything is supposed to be, and the way they did it is very appealing.

My name is Efren, and I chose Zero and The Maker by Zealous Creative. The url for the two are:

Zero - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOMbySJTKpg
The Maker - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDXOioU_OKM

What I liked about these two videos is the story telling. It uses real world items and utilize it for different scenarios, Zero with its use of yarn characters, The maker with its use of multiple items for its own creation.

a) Fresh Guacamole by Pes
b) Stop Motion | Whiteboard Animation: The Marker Maker
a) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNJdJIwCF_Y
b) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vZ0iqUS6sg
a) I enjoyed this stop-motion film because of the creativity used in portraying certain foods with ordinary objects, for example, instead of using an avocado the used a toy grenade. It was a effective use of stop motion because it was extremely detailed and it seemed that they spent lots of time taking the pictures just right.
b) I thought this video was interesting because it was able to transform drawn animals into different animals, there were also creative uses of lines and drawing within. I also thought it was cool how he combined his drawing skills with his photography.

I liked this video because it looked like the person making it put a lot of time into it. The idea behind the video was cool, and the editing was smooth. It is one of the better ones I have seen.

this had really cool imagry snd the transitions were really nice.

this is from the same people as the other one and again, the transitions were really nice and they put a lot of work into this.

This video was interesting and fantastic that with some effort you can turn any item into anything else. Clever use of sound and using viewers ideas on what the intended item is supposed to look like allows you to turn benign everyday objects into a fish.

"Stop Motion Pizza" https://youtu.be/YQkC0Qs3aD0
The video shows how a pizza is made but it's more then that. It animated (no pun intended) the pizza ingredients as they dance into place and shows the journey to become a pizza and to its final destination.

4. what i really like about the first one is how the characters are created in creative ways. The stop motion is very smooth. The characters bounce, the stretch, and interact with the way they are being made. For the second one, i thought the white board was a very useful and good idea for stop motion. i enjoy how the scenes connects to each other.

was almost like a cartoon, the length of the video was incredible.

The two videos I chose are called "The Egg Escape" and "How to Make Hamburgers".

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xPVi_5JIeNE - The Egg Escape

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oGJnr3wZdY - How to Make Hamburgers

I enjoyed the video "How to Make Hamburgers" because the animation is very smooth. The transition from the clay turning into actual food is very clean, yet still looks like the style of stop motion animation. The reason i enjoy the video "The Egg Escape" is because the video is interesting to watch. While the video is not as smooth as the other one, this video tells a interesting story that is enjoyable to watch. The story is about a group of eggs that try to help a egg that hasn't been cracked yet to escape from the kitchen before it can be cracked.

Lego In Real Life (Stop Motion)
Fresh Guacamole by PES | Oscar Nominated Short
I like how both creators uses legos to replace food, it material is very creative and the video motion is very smooth.

I liked this video because I thought the use of materials was very creative. Such as the use of salt and pepper shakers as buildings and matches as missiles.

Fresh Guacamole https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNJdJIwCF_Y
The reason that I enjoyed this video is that the creator had a lot of attention to small details. Such as when he was cutting the avocado grenade and the clay was on the knife after.

My name is Casey. The video that I posted was a lego renactment of the mall chase in from the movie, The Blues Brothers. Even though the videos animation was a bit clunky, the motion of the cars tearing through the mall and the camera angles are very accurate to the movie.

4. I enjoyed this video because it's gruesome and freaky and you have no ida whats going on. What made it effective was the use of the eyeballs rolling in their heads.

2. T is for Toilet
3. https://youtu.be/UCmMebE0pIg
4. I like this one because it was really cool how the toilet ripped the clay moms face off revealing her skull. What made it effective was the use of fake blood.

I liked how it flowed together. The video wasn't choppy and the frames fit together very nicely. The one thing is, it took him two months to put this together and so if I were to make something like this it would have to be a lot shorter.

I find this video very interesting due to how smoothly everything went through the whole video. The person used clay throughout the video here and there. I found it very cool how they changed the clay into real things, like in this one it was food. It was satisfying to watch, I suggest it.

"Stop Motion Animation - The Missing Stickman"

I like this photo do to it was well put together, and paper drawings are kinda hard to work with cause of using different drawings for animation to be able to move. Also I thought would be kinda hard is that paper can be easily ruined and since there was a lot of moving, and I was surprised the drawing wasn't ruined.

4. Magic water had a great use of clay as the water. The way it moved and formed was very smooth and looked pleasing.

fresh guacamole had very creative visual jokes like the chips at the end being poker chips instead of normal chips. It had pretty good attention to detail, and was also just very clever.

My name is Casey. I like this video because you can kind of feel for the stick man as he wanders through a giant and scary world. I like how the creator goes from computer screen to inside her office through the printer.
