SFotD: ‘Nitro Warriors’ is a Clever Stop-Motion Car Chase

By  · Published on October 8th, 2012

Why Watch? This might cause a flashback to playing the Micro Machines game on Nintendo. Director Paul Greer has crafted a thrilling car chase complete with an army of police cars, a mystery Corvette and a Mustang with a few tricks up its gear shaft. He managed it all on a tiny budget because…all of the cars are tiny.

It’s a strong example not just of stop-motion work, but of playfully energetic camera work as well. It’s an excellent diversion that gets a lot of mileage out of real-world sound effects placed behind a toy-built universe.

What will it cost you? Only 3 minutes.

Skip work. Watch more short films.
