16. How The ‘Jurassic Park’ Dinosaurs Switched From Stop Motion To CGI

Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park," along with other early-to-mid-Nineties films like "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" and "Toy Story," were all part of a breakthrough era in CGI filmmaking. What many people may not realize, however, is that the decision to create computer-animated dinosaurs wasn't made until the film was well into production.

17. Meet Tobias Stretch And His Life-Size Stop Motion Creatures

There are many ways to create animation, and most of them are tedious and life draining. It's pretty common to find animators incorporating some combination of chair and desk as a prison of their practice, where they trudge through their work while simultaneously wasting away. Tobias Stretch has no appetite for that lifestyle, and uses the world as his stop motion playground.

22. ‘Gravity Falls’ Does Stop Motion Ray Harryhausen Tribute

The latest episode of Gravity Falls, which is done in an anthology format a la The Simpsons’ “Treehouse of Horror,” includes an ambitious tribute to stop motion legend Ray Harryhausen (1920-2013) with actual stop motion animation that references Harryhausen films like The 7th Voyage of Sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts. Harryhausen appears in the episode as “Harry Claymore” and there are plenty of inside jokes about the animation process, as well as a stop motion gag about Gumby. The stop motion segment, “Clay Day,” starts in the video below at around the 13:25-minute mark. Unfortunately, the video is cropped, but you’ll get the idea: (Thanks, HarryhausenFan)
