Beautiful fan-made video...

... for Grizzly Bear's 'Two Weeks'. I know there are a few animators who read this, so can anyone tell me if there's a technical term for that style where digital animation is used to simulate old-fashioned automata-style puppetry? Also used to lovely effect on a recent Muse video, although I can't remember which one, and the Super Furry Animals' Not The End Of The World video

That's lovely. Nice song too. Brightened up my Monday morning a treat!

I think the Muse video you're refering to is Invincible.

That is astonishing.

When you called it "fan-made" I was expecting something slightly less slick...

As a stop-motion animator, what we call this kind of thing is "cheating", because you're SUPPOSED to really make everything out of cardboard and wood and paperclips and do it the old-fashioned impossible way.

That is beautiful - thanks for the link and the one to the rabbit/bear/wolf. Beats working.
