What types of stop motions are there?

well hello there

Some ways people created stop motion was using dolls (sometimes wooden), using drawings (like on a chalkboard). Another method was using clay or using many sculpted clay figures to create and animate, it was called clay-mation. Another method is taking photos of a real life object such as a tomato and seeing how it is made into tomato sauce using many photos of the tomato and then adding the pictures to video and having them move at a fast pace.

What examples already exist?

Many of today's popular animations are created with thousands of clay figures conveying many different expressions. Some films include “The Nightmare before Christmas” By Tim Burton and “Coraline” also by Tim Burton.
