Tony vs. Paul - The Coolest Stop Motion Video Ever Made
« on: December 01, 2006, 08:31:12 AM »
This stop-motion video (where individual frames are composed and then played back rapidly to generate an illusion of movement), is incredible, and shows what kind of brilliant work can be done by some dedicated individuals..  Pure fun and brilliant!

 ;D ;D ;D ;D incredible!!
That requires an amazing amount of creative spirit, and most of all, an amazing amount of time! These guys surelly had to work a lot to make this!
It's very well done, i still can't understand how they did that part where they go one after the other while hovering... amazing :D

They hover by just jumping in the air all the time, using only the frames of them in the air  :D You can tell by the motion blur at the feet. This is really awesome and it must’ve taken quite some time to make!

in this style of stop motion - has to be in the top few or, if not, at the top of the list.

i'm still waiting for someone to do a 'matrix' bullet time kind of sequence using this type of animation - maybe i've just not looked hard enough?

I hate YouTube! Their compression sucks or something because the videos never stream fast enough. I rarely have a problem with other similar video streaming sites like Google Video.

Google needs to kill YouTube. They bought it, now put it to sleep.

Awesome video, by the way. I saw most of the techniques used in a video several months ago, but the music was great too!

;D It's curious, i have the exact oposite problem. I can stream videos from youtube flawlessly, but most of the time, i can't stream videos from google video :(
I guess that must be related to our ISPs having better or worse connection to each of them.

I have a friend who lives on the opposite side of the country who also shares my hatred (which is actually a very strong and exaggerated word in this scenario) for YouTube for the same reasons. It doesn't stream fast enough for us while most all other YouTube-like sites are fine.
