UK-based nothinghereok purchased an old engine off eBay to replace his old one and then began to document the disassembly process with his DSLR. He soon realized that the project would make a neat stop motion video, so he ended up shooting over 3,000 photographs during the 11 months of disassembly. After combining the photos and adding some music, this is what resulted.

Water drop photographer Corrie White creates pretty neat “time-lapse” videos of water drops falling and making splashes. The images aren’t from the same splash: White shoots one photo of 350-400 individual drop attempts, with each photo delayed just a fraction of a second longer than the previous one. Combining the resulting images into a time-lapse (or stop-motion) video creates the result seen here.
Feast your eyes on this amazing stop motion music video idea for the song “Rivers and Homes” by electronic music artist J.Views. After filming a traditional music video in upstate New York, the production team had 2000 of the individual frames printed out. The prints were then distributed during a recent tour in Israel to 300 fans, who held them up and posed for new photographs. The resulting photographs were then re-animated into a video showing the original music video running in stop motion in the hands of the fans. No computer fakery was involved in the production, and the final video is quite mind-blowing.
This fascinating video by Hayley Morris for Hilary Hahn and Hauschka’s “Bounce Bounce” is both a very creative use of stop motion, and a testament to her skill as a craftsman. She actually created the entire underwater world, sketching and creating the characters herself. If you’re interested in seeing how she goes about creating this magical world, here’s a video featuring her work by Sketchbook films: Read more…
If you like PES’ stop-motion videos in which random objects are prepared as food, you’ll love this creative music video for the song “Get By” by Delta Heavy. It’s mind-boggling to think about how much time and energy went into preparing and photographing each individual still: director Ian Robertson shot 11,008 photographs and selected 3,184 for the final cut. 10 hours were required just to animate the 18 frames showing the Rubik’s Cube equalizer. Animation took a total of 32 days. You can find more background information and photos here.
New York-based animator Adam Pesapane (who goes by the working name PES) creates some of the smoothest and most creative stop-motion videos we’ve seen. In the short video above, titled “Fresh Guacamole”, he shows how you can create a guacamole dip out of random objects such as baseballs, golf balls, and dice.
San Francisco-based indie band Wildlife Control made this creative music video for their song “Analog or Digital” using both time-lapes and stop-motion techniques. They spent a day on at Ocean Beach in SF, shooting the entire video in one take as a series of 3,060 individual photographs. The fast playback makes the world around them pass in time-lapse, while their synchronized movements cause them to move around like stop-motion claymation figures. It’s definitely not an easy feat — they had to play the song slowed down 35x!
A clever little stop-motion video that shows what baking would be like if you could do it in Photoshop. Unlike with photos, it’d probably be wise to steer clear of the Burn Tool.
