Neat Hand and Paper Parkour Animation

Here’s a dose of creative inspiration: a hand animated video of parkour. Created by Serene Teh and Noel Lee, parkour motion reel is a pretty unique take on the flip book style of animation.

While this video isn’t directly related to photography, the concept can definitely be done with photographs instead of being hand-drawn, and might make for some pretty awesome animation. Photographs have already been used in this kind of animation, but usually using stop motion (i.e. The PEN Story and stop motion with wolf and pig.)

If you have any examples of photographs being animated by hand in this manner, please link us!

    Just wanted to drop a line and say that I've been following the blog for a couple months now and am just continually amazed at the cool stuff you manage to dredge up out of the depths of the internet. Always inspiring and photography-related. Keep up the great work!

    Thank you for this article. The parkour appears to me indeed as an extreme sport which has the merit to make see with people these places relegated to the second plan and on the way to become taboos which are the suburbs. There is also a share of irony in the fact of going up and of jumping where the common run of people goes in onion row. In the article that I wrote on the subject (, I see a desire there for flying over misery and the daily newspaper.
