Stop-Motion Inside a Stop-Motion with 500 People and 1,500 Photos

Eran Amir created this “stop-motion within a stop-motion” using 1,500 separate photographs and 500 volunteers. The massive amounts of work, creativity, and planning that this project must have required is mind-boggling.

    I can see how he did it, not a difficult as it might appear. Now waiting for the inevitable Ad that uses a “similar” technique.

    Great idea is not about how hard it is done. It’s about idea, execution and dedication.
    Cool video :-)…

    I feel that it’s a pretty simple thing to achieve. However, it was pretty creative of the person to make it with 500 people.

    I believe that he took a video camera or a DSLR that has HD video capabilities and recorded. After he did some simple editing he took each frame and printed a picture of it and then numbered the back of each picture. The next step was to find the 500 people to have take a picture with his picture.

    Clever nonetheless.

    Nice/clever idea – although I think the external frame changing so much is rather too distracting/ flashing.

    Another way to do it would be to have each of the 500 people hold a blue/green card, then add the pictures in digitally later. A small scale blue/green screen, if you will.

    I had assumed in watching that the people were holding a blank picture and that the video on the picture was laid in later.  Maybe not.  Either way, super cool to watch.
