Stop Motion is an old animation technique. It works by taking a photograph of the object, then moving the object a little bit and then taking another photograph. After assembling the photographs to a film, it appears as though the objects would move by themselves. This is similar to the animation of cartoons and is used in many early monster films, like the old [[Godzilla]] movies or the [[Wallace and Gromit]] films
