These two animations to me are groundbreaking. Tim Burton, sinister as ever produced this stop motion in 1982 – over 25 years ago and it still resonates with me, it is completely timeless. The stop motion and voice work great together, the style of the animation is rich and cleverly portrayed through the characters facial expressions. Pure Genius.

This particular animation is fantastic, it on first glance is visually not up to scratch, but please if you have not heard of this guy then you should have. These animations are based on comic timing and accuracy in animation. I studied these animations for quite some time learning about timing and ensuring that the character you create gets the timing they deserve.
