Amazing Stop Motion Music Video Using 2000 Photos Held Up by 300 Fans

Feast your eyes on this amazing stop motion music video idea for the song “Rivers and Homes” by electronic music artist J.Views. After filming a traditional music video in upstate New York, the production team had 2000 of the individual frames printed out. The prints were then distributed during a recent tour in Israel to 300 fans, who held them up and posed for new photographs. The resulting photographs were then re-animated into a video showing the original music video running in stop motion in the hands of the fans. No computer fakery was involved in the production, and the final video is quite mind-blowing.

    “no computer fakery” Although it cool to watch, it is fake, you can see the frames tilt but the insert image doesn’t, not once, but like 80% of the video. Still cool that they got friends involved.

     Yeah, propably just gave those people a green or blue card to hold and edited the video in. That’s how I would have done it anyways

    Sorry – beg to differ – there’s no way there was no computer fakery involved – exposure across the held pictures too consistent.

    This (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LpmrZbTu1o) was done four and a half years ago and much more obviously NOT faked. But I’ve no idea who did this first…

    It looks authentic to me, and I’m inspired to try this on a future video project. The photos are held fairly horizontally/square in my view.
