Very impressive stop motion text movie: TXT ISLAND.

TXT ISLAND is a typographic tale of epic misadventure. The film was shot as stop-motion animation of plastic sign board letters by animation director Chris Gavin and completed in May 2009 after a production period of around 9 months.

Thanks to Ilkke for the headzüp.
