Short Flicks: "AMWAY" Making of

Beautifully hand-crafted and delicately made, this is a great commercial made on a tiny, tiny, frame-to-frame scale.  Also beautiful is the 2-minute 'making of' featurette.  Which I would consider the (or close to) best Stop Motion 'making of' for a commercial.  In the briskly paced film (link below) we are taken from idea to final product but what we mostly see is the design process (including animation, set building, lighting, and everything important to us geeks!); also, we get to see the great little details most looks behind the scenes leave out (I give huge credit the Comma Studio, the powerhouse behind this flick).

This film is like a display case of great Stop Motion and the possibilities it opens up to a filmmaker on a micro-scale.  Go watch the final product and you can find out more info about Comma Studios go here.
