Patrick Boivin


Patrick Boivin’s latest stop-motion short—a comedic battle between Iron Man and Bruce Lee—burned up the interw3b as soon as it was released a few days ago. And for good reason. Boivin’s storytelling skills are matched by his spot-on stop motion work. Watch the making-of video to get a glimpse of Boivin’s meticulous process.

The film above is just the tip of the iceberg. Boivin’s portfolio is brimming with entertaining and inventive work. Oh, and don’t miss the interactive dance-off between Batman and Joker.

    I would just like to know which software is that for stop motion.
    Nice by the way!

  • JIM

    The software Patrick uses is Dragon Stop Motion from Jamie and Dyami Caliri.

    After Effects and a few plugins are used if you check out some of Patricks behind the scenes work.

    That was one of the best stopmotion character animations i’ve seen.

    is this really what passes for inventive and clever nowadays?

      You don’t think an interactive dance off between Joker and Batman on you tube is inventive and clever?

      Justin wasn’t talking about the animation itself being those things, but rather the INTERACTIVE format. That is pretty clever, if you ask me. He did a street fighter one too. Pretty sure it hasn’t been done before.
