Launching on iOS (opens in new tab) this January, Vine (opens in new tab) has proved incredibly popular and has just hit Android (opens in new tab). A platform for anyone to create short, beautiful, looping videos in a simple and fun way, it's inspired countless designers to create inspirational six-second clips.
One such creative is Ian Padgham (opens in new tab) - an animator who has taken full advantage of Vine's usability to create striking stop-motion shorts. These aren't just any old offerings - his ability to showcase his talent in just six short seconds is impressive by any means.
Manipulating a small wooden artist's model to create surprisingly humanistic motions, Padgham also shoots 360 degree panoramas. Intrigued by his techniques? You can view a load of 'how to' videos (opens in new tab) that Padgham has so kindly uploaded. Also see our pick of the best animations from the past 20 years.
