Early animation often included stop-motion photography (think Claymation, Davey & Goliath, etc.) to create movement of characters and changes in scenery. Filmmakers are coming back to the use of stop-motion photography, with amazing results.
Christian filmmakers Eric and Jeffrey Leiser (Albino Fawn Productions), use this technique in their project Glitch in the Grid, a story about young artists dealing with life, love, work and weariness during the new American recession. The hybrid live action/animation uses some new methods in landscape animation that are really fascinating. Here's a teaser/trailer of their new work.
"Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before God made anything at all and is supreme over all creation. Christ is the one through whom God created everything in heaven and earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can't see-kings, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities. Everything has been created through him and for him. He existed before everything else began, and he holds all creation together." - Colossians 1:15-17
