Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski have created yet another fantastic music video! This time we have a stop-motion for Shugo Tokumaru’s song, “Katachi”.

I’ve seen several videos utilize a similar special effect (this video for example) but I like what they achieved here by actually cutting each frame out of foam core and photographing them. Watch the animation below!

    What a great song to wake up to in the morning.

    Its the same principle as David Daniel’s stratacut technique. You can find a video that showcases some of his work that he did for MTV, PeeWee Herman, etc. here: https://vimeo.com/6523587 You can also find an interview of David Daniels and a demo of his stratacut technique here: http://www.artofthetitle.com/title/freaked/

    i’ve actually posted strata cut videos before – example: http://www.booooooom.com/2011/05/23/nicos-livesey-strata-cut-animations/

    its not really the same technique – this one involves making an animation and then printing out each frame and cutting them up and placing them in sequence. strata cut almost works backwards in that you are making a giant “log” and are cutting away slices. i actually like the idea of strata cut animations even more because theres a lot more unpredictability.

    i wish i could remember the name of the video but there was also a music video several years ago with all these japanese school girls holding poses for several minutes during a long tracking shot mimicking the idea of seeing all frames of movement at once. ill try to find it

    somehow the music video is now Smoke DZA…

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!
