Here’s something a little different to the CG infused mega budget fare we’re often talking about, and this new clip from A Town Called Panic is just the thing to slap a smile on your face this evening.

With Tim Burton returning to marvel of stop motion animation with Frankenweenie the time is right for the spotlight to fall on two masters of the form who are offering up a sublime and surreal toy story for your edification.

Garth Jennings and Nick Goldsmith, better known as Hammer and Tongs, were in town recently to help spread the word on this wickedly quirky animation and we had the chance to find out more about Vincent Patar and St├ęphane Aubier’s film.

Our chat with them will be up on the site shortly, and in the meantime why not check out this new clip?

This is Empire’s doing, and here’s the trailer for the film, which is released into the UK wild on the 8th of October.
