Knitting is getting quite a bit of coverage on PetaPixel this week. Just a couple days ago we featured the surreal knitting photographs of Daniela Edburg. The above is an creative commercial for natural gas by TBWA Brussels and directed by Olivier Babinet. What’s amazing is that all the stop-motion animation you see is done using wool and a team of super dedicated knitters. They’ve also released a behind the scenes video showing how the commercial was made.
I love this kind of effort because it shows you how much you can do with good ol’ fashioned hard work and perseverance.
Update: Rather than “knitting”, the process is probably better described as “un-knitting”.
It’s amazing what simple photography and tons of time and dedication can produce. This stop motion video was created using 25,000 pieces of paper and a 10 foot wall.
Our “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” story unfolds through thousands of individual photos featuring Walt Disney World Cast Members moving sticky notes around by hand – no video cameras were used. Also, there were no post-production “tricks” used to create the giant sticky note Mickey Mouse, the background or to “animate” the pieces of paper. See for yourself.
Also, keep your eye out for the photographer behind the camera making a cameo appearance.
