On StopMotionPlanet, we love animators who reveal the tricks of the trade. Kevin Parry is a stop-motion animator who delightfully describes his job as “literally mov(ing) puppets around one frame at a time - 24 frames per second.” Parry has animated for movies like The Boxtrolls, Kubo and the Two Strings (where it was his job to bring the Kubo vs. Moon Beast battle to life) and the upcoming Missing Link.
Parry animated a soda can as a way to test out a stop-motion animation setup in his house and uploaded the final product to YouTube. It serves as an excellent resource for aspiring animators since Parry includes a time lapse of the animation process as well as the raw footage.
