Stop-motion videos
« on: February 03, 2009, 05:28:27 PM »
As I was getting up to date with my list of feeds, I saw two videos posted in one of the few blogs about design I'm suscribed to, that looked particularly interesting judging by their description.

The first one is amazingly cool, I love it. Called "Western Spaghetti", it shows a recipe for spaghetti with very particular ingredients.

The second one is a music video of a song by Oren Laview called "Her Morning Elegance". The video shows that elegance, and the song is not bad.

Hope you like them :)

Here is another cool one by the guy that did the "Western Spaghetti" one, with a classic video game theme: http://www.youtube.c.../watch?v=Ovvk7T8QUIU

He did another one I am not sure I should post a link to, with 2 chairs on a roof. (poor cat!)  :D

This could turn out to be a dangerous thread for me, since I adore stop-motion. (from gumby, to rankin-bass holiday specials, to growing flowers, and slurms...and everything in between!)  :-*

Yeah, "Her Morning Elegance" was really really beautiful and sad too.  Thanks for sharing it.
"Western Spaghetti" was pretty damn cool too  :up:

Her Morning Elegance   :-*

Many Thanks Lashiec. It made my day.

-----

Some really superb stop-motion dream sequences can be found in the film The Science of Sleep. Nice little romantic film for a quiet evening.

Amazing what can be done with some cardboard and creativity. Not gimmicky either. The stop-motion segments aren't just there to be clever. They mesh logically with the story and the main character.

---

Her Beautiful Ideas, by Guggenheim Grotto, is an interesting music video that combines "sketch pad animation" with stop-motion techniques to tell a common but sad little story. Worth a viewing.

Morning Elegance, Western spaghetti, and Her Beautiful Ideas went immediately to my two best friends. Thanks for helping me look sensitive and a little classy. (drool dripping rhythmically on the flask of Southern Comfort in my shirt pocket)

Reza Dolatabadi created "Khoda" from >6000 paintings.
The idea is, wherever you pause the film you see a painting.
This took two years to complete.

See it here.

Isn't that basically every classic Disney movie? Or any hand-animated movie/cartoon/video ever?

I´d say it´s a difference to paint each frame with oil colors. The movie is impressive.

Sure oil paints take longer, but it's not really a unique idea to take a lot of drawings/sketches/paintings and show them in order to produce an animation.

Perhaps the point is that each 'frame' is intended to stand as a piece of art in its own right. While it might be argued that this is true of an individual Disney cel., my own view would be that there's a considerable difference.

Khoda is a very impressive piece of work from the visual perspective.

But I'm not sure I'm getting what it all means. :huh:

Still, it's a beautiful bit of work. :Thmbsup:

Gee, I didn't claim to understand it!
Still, if you imagine say every 20th one of those canvases hung sequentially in a gallery it would make an interesting exhibition.

Yes it would, even if it were done as an online gallery. :Thmbsup:

The last one has been all over the web during the last days. It boggles the mind to think how much work went into it (looks like everything was done by a single person), and the results are outstanding.

Well... it's been a while since somebody posted to this topic so I thought I'd start it up again with some new stuff that's been making the StoMo rounds. :)  

Here's a clever video using Post-It notes as the raw material for a "pixel-art" animation. It's called Deadline, and it's up on YouTube. Fascinating to see it in motion. (The stills below do not do it justice.) There's also a companion "making of" vid available if you want to get a look behind the scenes.

FYI: it took 3 months to plan, 4 days to shoot and 6000+ Post-Its. By my calculations, that's approximately $1,100 just to buy the Post-Its. You could score a full copy of Adobe CS for less than that!

(Thx to the folks over at TechLifeWeb for this find! :Thmbsup:)
