Marcel the Shell with Shoes On returns for a third episode in celebration of a new book, The Most Surprised I've Ever Been.
We covered creators Dean Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate when they won the AFI prize for the first episode back in 2010. Here's the 2011 sequel for you completionists.
Chalk artist Chris Carlson sends us this astounding stop-motion animation of his 3D chalk drawings of Link from Legend of Zelda, popping out of two-space and having a mischievous adventure in our world. I can't even begin to imagine the amount of labor that went into drawing the frames of this animation -- bravo!
Patrick Boivin is a stop-motion animation genius who does insanely amazing and expressive things with cheap action figures. I could watch Einstein kicking Vader's ass for hours.

Kyle Roberts used Mattel's new classic Batman action figures to recreate the iconic title sequence of the 1960 Batman TV series. Oklahoma City's O'Fidelis covered the theme tune and Nathan Poppe drew the backgrounds for this stop-motion fun. "Batman Stop Motion Intro (1966)"
Boing Boing pal Joe Sabia, who works with me to create our in-flight Boing Boing Virgin America TV channel, shares his latest project. This delightful short film was 7 months in the making, all done with hand-made miniatures. It's a promotional video for Bamboo Sushi, a restaurant in Portland.
Lori Nix/Kathleen Gerber were the brilliant miniature model makers. Vincent Peone directed. Michael T scored. Matt McCorkle did Sound FX.
