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!

Previously posted Kijek and Adamski’s work here and here.

  • Awesome!

    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…

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
