Stop Motion Musical Tours Through a City and a School

Photographer and director Greg Jardin made this creative music video for the song “New York City” by Joey Ramone. It’s a stop-motion video that features 115 people (some of them random pedestrians yanked off the street) traveling backwards through various locations in New York City.

The video was shot using a Nikon D800 shooting stills at 8 frames per second.

Here’s a director’s commentary video with some behind the scenes information. Even though he simply talks about the random people in the video for much of it, there’s some interesting stuff on techniques used afterward:

Inspired by Jardin’s video, another photographer named Kevin C. decided to create a similar video for his high school. Kevin’s video was shot using a Canon T3 DSLR:

The video features 140 students and faculty at the Hunter College High School. A total of 1991 photographs were shot and then turned into an 8fps video.
