Video: This Zelda Stop Motion Animation is Crazy, and Awesome
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
And no, it's not closely based on the series
Zelda is a series that inspires plenty of people to take up instruments, cameras and more to produce fun videos or fan-albums for everyone to enjoy. It's also a franchise with such ardent fans that it can promote concerts worldwide and consistently sell out venues; it's truly iconic.
Naturally, YouTube is full of videos that celebrate the series, but one particularly fantastic stop-motion animation has arrived this week. Talented animator Counter656 has been picked up by Machinima for a series of fantasy animations based on the Zelda series, using the Figma Link figurine along with other equivalents and clay models.
This isn't exactly a faithful recreation of the series, however. Link summons an ally, throws out magic and selects some weird items, so it's not one for traditionalists. For everyone else, however, this is pretty darn fun.
