A Simple Camera Gear Stop-Motion Ecard to Usher in 2013

For a New Year’s greeting ecard this year, Paris-based photographer Noël Bourcier decided to put his camera equipment to good use, but not in the way you’d expect. He gathered up some of the camera equipment at the EFET School’s photography program, recruited a couple of photography students, and turned the equipment into the simple stop-motion ecard seen above.

395 photographs went into the animation. Here are some making-of photographs captured during the creation process:

Happy_New_Year_01

Happy_New_Year_05

Happy_New_Year_08

Happy_New_Year_10

You can find a lengthier writeup of how it was done (in French) over on the EFET website.
