This is what I mean. Integration between techniques. Here, AE, Cinema 4d and stopmotion or rather frame by frame hand drawn animation. Seems a whole bunch of work to me, but check the results. Amazing! good and simple script, crazy cinema backgrounds, a weird toad and great sound design. Go check, just a pair of minutes or so. Good resource for integrated crafts.
