Like all disciplines, the production of films and short films has its stars. And among the big names in the field of stop motion, a technique that consists of giving life to objects by moving them by hand, we present SEP.

This American who lives in Los Angeles totals more than 300 million views on his Youtube channel. He presents short films in stop motion (or mini scenes of a few seconds) of which one has already been nominated Oscars in 2013 : it is Fresh Guacamole and we present it to you below. Very sensitive to cooking, culinary preparations often come back in his themes, that's why we made the choice to select you 3 stop motion shorts that we found just fantastic.
