Charleston filmmaker's stop motion YouTube video tops 18 million views

10 hours of work = 30 second video



Trent Shy, a local artist and filmmaker, creates claymation stop motion videos and has a pretty big online presence and following. This week, though, things have really taken off and his latest YouTube video, at just 31 seconds long, has over 18 million views.
"The Animator" is currently crushing it on YouTube — just watch it to see why (warning: it's grossly addictive).

In an Instagram post Shy explains the process behind the short film, which took 10 hours to animate.

Check out all of Shy's work via his YouTube channel.
