André Maat brings some little pieces of wood to life with a terrific stop-motion animation. Watch “Woodoo” below!
One of the most talented artists I know, Kirsten Lepore, has finally released her CalArts graduate thesis film and it is incredible. “Move Mountain” is a masterpiece, a wonderful story about healing, expertly told and gorgeously animated. This is what it looks like when a filmmaker has complete control of her craft.
I interviewed Kirsten last year and we talked about her previous films, and briefly about how a song by The Knife kinda inspired “Move Mountain” (read the interview here). She remains one of only a few people to ever guest post on Booooooom, and her post of hand drawn animations is still one of my favourites in the history of this site (see it here).
Check out those links, turn up your speakers, turn down your lights, and enjoy her film below!
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!
Darcy Prendergast and Seamus Spilsbury created this amazing animation for “Time To Go” by Wax Tailor and Aloe Blacc. It’s so well done that I was convinced parts of it were CG, but Darcy assured me over Twitter it’s all stop-motion. The crochetted creature’s little adventure was shot over the course of three and a half months (six days a week, 12-hour days). Watch below!
