My roommate Javan Ivey is an animator, specializing in stop-motion techniques. Some of his films use a "stratastencil" technique, in which he cuts out each frame from a sheet of paper and photographs them in sequence, layered on each other. The following is one of the films Javan made in this technique, "My Paper Mind."
More info about the making of this animation is on Javan's website:
