“The Deep”: Stop-action creatures of the inky depths

When it rains squid news, it pours. Longtime Collision Detection reader Paul Gemperle sent me a link to this awesome stop-action video of household tools transformed into deep-ocean creatures. The appearance of the bioluminescent hunter fish towards the end was, for me, the clincher.

The genius behind this — an animator called PES — has a whole pile of other movies online that are equally as delightful. Thanks, Paul!
