A place for stop-motion animation in 2016?

Charlie Kaufman, on the animation technique in his new film, Anomalisa {cartoon brew}:

As we move into an increasingly virtual society, I find solace and comfort in the hands-on, human imperfection of the stop motion process. It is to me both heartbreaking and beautiful. The imperfections of the humans who create these works make it so. And, oddly perhaps, because of this, these puppets make me feel more connected to those sweet aspects of us as human beings.
