Wriggles & Robbins put together this short stop-motion film to promote life-drawing classes at east London's Book Club. In the film, a life model is drawn by the students and dances from easel to easel. After setting up ten easels and capturing the artists sketching the model at a different angle, they edited it together by merging each drawing into the next.

IBM scientists have created the world's smallest movie using a scanning tunneling microscope (STM) to drag the atoms across the surface of a copper place using magnetism...taking Stop-Motion to a whole new (very very tiny) level.

We had heard this film was in production, but forgot about it until yesterday when we saw a new trailer for Michel Gondry's "Mood Indigo." Looks like the French filmmaker is back to creating the more whimisical, creative, and surreal fantasy worlds of some of his best films (Eternal Sunshine, Science of Sleep). Remember when we did a photoshoot with our Petit Gondry a few years back to coincide with our interview with Grand Gondry? That was fun. Now watch the trailer...

We really enjoyed this short expiremental video by documentary filmmaker Willie Witte. When not working or planning documentaries, Willie experiments with analog visual techniques, some of which he applied in this video. None of the visuals in this video were computer generated!

We hope you enjoy this languid and softly sensual video from Nathen Atia, featuring gorgeous Scottish redhead Lass Suicide. Sultry yet tender, Lass exudes a kind of old school glamour combined with a provocative edge that you can't help but fall in lust with.

Lauren YS, who we have put on the site in the past, has captured some of her excellent Moleskine sketches via a stop-motion animation designed to showcase the work of numerous years into one single view. The pages themselves are changing chronicle of development, showing the sketches and how they have evolved over the years. Thank you to our Juxtapoz Latin America staff for the find.

We love this re-created Simpsons intro. London-based creative agency Devilfish made this real-life Simpson’s intro as a teaser for Sky One a few years ago. The timing and framing of every shot is spot-on. Watch it after the jump...

American fetish photographer Steve Diet Goedde has lost quite a few Twitter followers since uploading his latest video, a furry-inspired striptease set to Duke Ellington. We don't see what's so strange about it, pandas are easily the sexiest of endangered species.

In the 1960s at the height of the space race during the Cold War, a grade school science teacher named Edward Makuka Nkolso headed up the newly independent Zambia's space program at an old farmhouse. Nkoloso was serious and applied for a £7M grant from UNESCO and assembled a crew including a 17-year-old girl and two cats. The story inspired photographer Christina de Middel's series Afronauts and now filmmaker Frances Bodomo to shoot a short film. Watch the trailer after the jump...

We love a good opening sequence, so much so that we could have stopped watching The Darjeeling Limited after 3 minutes and that Kinks song. Opening credits are important, whether Woody Allen's simple text treatments or Hitchcock's more ominous, playful openers. "THE FILM before THE FILM is a short documentary that traces the evolution of title design through the history of film. This short film was a research project at the BTK (Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule) that takes a look at pioneers like Saul Bass, Maurice Binder and Kyle Cooper by showing the transitions from early film credits to the inclusion of digital techniques, a resurgence of old-school style, and filmmakers' love of typography in space."
