CLAYMATION - WHAT IS IT?

Claymation  or clay animation is essentially stop motion animation using clay. The word claymation is a joining of the words clay and animation, that is to say clay-animation to form claymation. Claymation software can be used to make these stop motion animation movies by combining lots of individual images of clay characters or clay forms.

Think of Gumby or Wallace and Gromit. Both arguably the best and most successful examples of clay animation.

It’s worth noting that claymation is very popular for animation in education as it is a inexpensive way to introduce students to the art form.

Here we have given you some examples of claymation from some talented clay animators on youtube. We’ve also included the very first episode of Gumby S1 – E1 – Moon Trip. The third animation video is of Wallace and Gromit – with a nod to the Gumby moon landing.

Clay to be specific is better known as  plasticine in the animation world.  Plasticine is actually a brand of putty like modelling material made out of calcium salts, aliphatic acids and petroleum jelly. Its a trademark of Flair Leisure products PLC.

stop motion

Stop Motion (or Stop-frame Animation) is a 2D or 3D animation technique to make any object appear to move on its own. The 3D or 2D object in question be it a ball, an apple or a clay character or a flat image or paper cutout is moved by small increments between individual photographs or frames, giving the illusion of movement when the sequence of photographs or frames are played back to the observer. The technique has been around for over 100 years and has given rise to some of the most popular movies not just stop motion animation movies of all time. Read more..
