Beautiful Short Animation Pays Homage to ‘The Editor’

We try to stay away from sharing video-specific content on PetaPixel because we consider ourselves photo people through and through.

Incredibly Creative Stop-Motion Film Made with Only Rubber Bands & Thumbtacks

It’s been a while since we’ve shared a stop-motion film, but ‘A Girl Named Elastika’ by French filmmaker Guillaume Blanchet was a no-brainer.

If you’ve followed PetaPixel for a while, or even if you just keep up with popular photo news, the image above probably looks familiar. Created by photographer Fong Qi Wei, it looks like it’s a part of his very successful series Time is a Dimension, which we featured back in August of last year.

Funny Video Puts a Slightly Creepy Spin on Asking Someone to ‘Take’ Your Picture

So check out the video at the top and if you want to see more Domics comics and animations, head over to the comic’s website and/or Facebook page.

A couple of months ago, The Creators Project and post-processing guru Joe Fellows teamed up to show you how to turn stills into ’2.5D’ animated sequences.

Light Goes On: An Unbelievable 700 Frame Stop Motion Light Painting Animation

If you’re not familiar with the light painting photography of Darren Pearson then you’re really missing out. Even if you’re not a big fan of light painting, his work truly is something to behold — whether it’s his photos or the short skateboarder animation we shared with you at the beginning of the year.

But that skateboarder animation’s got nothing on the video that Pearson released just a couple of days ago. Read more…
