PIKAPIKA!

People who have been reading this site for awhile know that I am obsessed with photography and specifically light drawing. The Japanese collective known as PIKAPIKA take it one step further and animate it all! Several companies in the past year (HP, etc) have used this in advertising but these guys really pioneered it. I almost want to put a warning here not to view too much of their work because you won’t even feel like getting out of bed in the tomorrow; they are that good.

More videos after the jump!

Another great video here, and here. Oh yea and a million more here.
