Here's a link to one such video
Step 1: Get the stuffs
addition: the video at the end was using 'monkey jams', it works so much better.
Step 2: Make the clay peoples
Step 3: Take the pictures
addition: i was using 24 fps and got 1Minute 8 seconds after taking over 1600 photos. i suggest a lower fps for beginners, like 4-7.
