Fun and Creative Stop-Motion Video for Summadayze 2011

The above is a promotional video for the Summadayze 2011 music festival done in stop-motion. It was created by Tom Blachford, a 22-year-old self-taught photographer based in Melbourne, Australia.

15 hours of photography were required to shoot the 1,000 frames that went into the final video, and there were no special effects added in digitally. This means all the illustrations seen in the background were painstakingly drawn by hand as the photography was being done. Wow.


Update: Tom tells us that the stills were shot using a Nikon D300s and two 600 watt strobes.
