A development that Phil and I have been deliberating is the concept of the of the project featuring a mixed media approach to the film, featuring a mix of real world footage and computer generated imagery. So before I have a script ready I thought I would show some examples of similar films that Phil and I have found.
PESfilm - Stopmotion Studio.
Mid Credits Animation from Kubo And The Two Strings - Studio LAIKA
I have also included this Vox feature about CG animation that is made to look like stopmotion by respecting the physical rules of the objects they're animating, and using lighting and camera techniques featured in stopmotion fan films.
