Western Spaghetti

All the talk of stop motion animation last week got me thinking, so I went in search of some great examples of this type of work. This Western Spaghetti viral is awesome. 

It’s clever and creative – making bubble wrap look like boiling water and turning a ball of string into cheese is truly inspired. This is the work of Adam Pesapane, a 35 year old digital artist based in New York City who goes by the nickname PES. If you’d like to see more of his creations take a look at his YouTube channel.

Thanks to SickDamage.com for bringing this to my attention. Take a look at their site for more cool videos, including a second video by PES called Human Skateboard – once again, the piece of work is genius. If anyone has seen any other great examples for us to feature then please let us know.

    Very impressive, some of the animation is absolutely stunning, but for me it just goes on a bit and is not that "clever" although the craftmanship is amazing! 2 yrs in a dark room to produce it ouch!

    Hi guys,

    This has to be one my favourite stop motion pieces.. it's called Madame Tulti Pulti! Stunning! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

    Yes I remember the Celebrity Deathmatch series - the idea was great and the first few were so funny, but it grew old quick. What was so funny about the characters was that you knew the artists would end up pulling them apart by the end of each match :)

  • Lee Danskin:

    Iron man vs Bruce Lee and Mr Bean vs Michael Jackson are both well animated and reasonably humorous. Shame it's not a new idea though - whole tv series have been made on this base idea.

    Classic MTV but nothing new...
