There are many videos and articles out there condemning the use of Photoshop to alter a model’s body in unnatural ways. The practice is abhorred by most, and hardly a week goes by that another “Photoshop fail” or controversy doesn’t arise (this week’s featured photos of actress Lena Dunham taken by iconic portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz).

LeAnn Rimes New Music Vid was Shot by a Vine Star… in Stop Motion… on an iPhone

If we start a post off by telling you that “the stop motion video above consists of 8,000 frames taken on an iPhone,” you’d probably assume it was some small-time filmmaker or hobbyist that put it together, and most of the time you’d be right.

In this case, however, you’d be dead wrong. Because that’s exactly how musicians LeAnn Rimes, Rob Thomas, and Jeff Beck decided to film the music video for their most recent collaboration, a song called “Gasoline and Matches.” Read more…

Combining Time-Lapse and Stop Motion to Create a Mind-Bending Music Video

We’ve seen some pretty creative music videos in the past, ranging from a microscopic time-lapse to what looked to be a Google Street View music video. The latest creative musical endeavor that has caught our eye is a video by the California group The Grouch & Eligh (or G&E for short).

Working together with Colorado-based DJ Pretty Lights, they put together a video that combines traditional time-lapse and hyper lapse with stop motion for a mind-bending ‘lyric lapse’ experience similar to what we saw in Marc Donahue and Sean Michael Williams’ Dream Music video. Read more…
