Clay Animation

In this technique figures made of clay or a similar malleable material are used to create stop-motion animation. The figures may have an armature or wire frame inside of them, similar to the related puppet animation (below), that can be manipulated in order to pose the figures. Alternatively, the figures may be made entirely of clay, such as in the films of Bruce Bickford, where clay creatures morph into a variety of different shapes.
Examples of Clay Animation - Most of the Aardman Studios films including the Wallace and Grommit series and Chicken Run
