What Is Stop Motion?

Stop motion is a film making technique that makes inanimate objects appear to move on their own. This is accomplished by taking an image of a still object, moving the object a tiny bit, then taking another image. Repeat this process, play back the sequence in rapid progression, and the object appears to move fluidly across the screen.
