February 25, 2015 12:59 AM   Subscribe

PES Film makes amazing stop-motion film shorts in which everyday objects take on unexpected utility.
Western Spaghetti (YT 1½m) - Fresh Guacamole (YT 1½m, Oscar-nominated "Best Short Film" 2013) - Game Over (YT 1½m) - The Deep (YT 1½m) - Submarine Sandwich (YT 2m previously) - Fireworks (YT 32s) - Moth (YT 20s)
These may be slightly NSFW depending on workplace: Roof Sex (YT 1m) - Black Gold (YT 1m) - Pee-Nut (YT 1m)
A few bits made for advertisements after the break.

These are some of the more interesting ads or promos PES made for various people:
Coinstar Shoe (YT 1m) - Washington State Lottery (YT 1m) - Human Skateboard (for Sneaku) (YT 31s) - Bacardi Submarine (YT 38s) - Sprint "Comforts of Home" (YT 40s) - citizenM Swan Song (YT 47s surprise!) - Orange Telecom "Hide & Seek" (YT 47s surprise!)
Thanks to Dr. Julia Griffin for the initial lead.

(Argh - I doubt people will care about this, but I've been careful lately to note general running times on YouTube videos so people know what they're in for in terms of length. The note on Hide & Seek I accidentally duplicated from Swan Song. It should be 1m, and the "surprise!" should also only be on Hide & Seek. Be sure to watch that one BTW, it's great.)
