I made this about a year ago. I animated it completely out of black sand on top of a light box and it took 20 hours to complete. It may be only stick figures but i think the fact that its made up of sand makes up for that.
Sorry if anybody had lagging troubles with playback. I was able to make the file size smaller so it should play fine now. if you are still having trouble, right click on the animation and change the quality. That should fix everything.
