The Eagleman Stag

Every once in a while, there comes along a body of work so imaginative it makes you believe all things are possible. Watch this absolutely lovely stop-motion animation (winner of the 2011 BAFTA for Best Short Animation) and you'll know what I mean. UK filmmaker Mikey Please incorporates thousands of hand-made models across 115 sets to tell the story of Peter Eagleman, an entomologist obsessed with the concept of time.
