From King Kong To The Terminator, Watch The Evolution Of Stop-Motion

(Vimeo / Vugar Efendi)

The world of stop-motion is unique in every sense of the word. Motion picture sequences are created by many, many still images or objects put together. What's even crazier is that this has been a film practice since the beginning of the 1900's. Over time, it has progressed into a genuine art form that has been the reason for some of the most famous film sequences of all time - King Kong atop the Empire State Building, The Terminator walking through fire just to name a few.

Finally, Vimeo user Vugar Efendi put together a compilation that captures all of these stop-motion sequences in one reel. Below are all the titles that were used:
