Claymation Chess

This short film of a chess game brought to life was created using the stop-motion photography technique called “clay animation“. In this type of animation, all of the movement is created by people modeling the clay by hand. Then each change is briefly filmed with only one or two frames. It usually takes 12 changes of position to make one second of film. That means that this tiny film, which lasts 111 seconds, has 1,332 position changes!
