The History Channel interviewed and toured with the Chiodos to show how everything they do is made by hand.
If you are a fan of the Chiodos the video that was recently uploaded to YouTube will be a big treat. They show a variety of different processes that all lead to their final film creations. From sketching with Charles and sculpting with Steve. Even the elusive Ed Chiodo shows himself to talk about how CG (computer graphics) had an effect on the world of stop motion. You can watch the entire video below:
To learn more about the Chiodo Brothers studio in Burbank California, this is their official web page. You can also become friends with Charles Chiodo on Facebook here, and Stephen over here. They usually upload some very funny and creative pictures to their profiles often.
For those who may have missed it, we posted some great behind the scenes videos that Doug Tennapel posted a while back on YouTube. They show the creation of a puppet from sculpt to casting and animating with the Chiodos. You can watch part 1 here, part 2 here, part 3 here and part 4 here. The rest of the parts (over 10) can be found on Dougs channel over here.
