365 Day Photo Project with Whiteboard Results in Creative Stop Motion Video

This creative stop-motion video was created over the course of one year by a boy named Kristen (unbeatableme on YouTube). He took at least one photograph every day for 365 days showing himself standing in front of a whiteboard. By changing elements inside the shot (e.g. his clothing, the art on the whiteboard, his hair), Kristen made one of the most “time-consuming” animation projects we’ve seen.

A Stop Motion Love Story Created Using 3000+ Hand-Cut Photographs

Computer generated imagery is becoming ubiquitous in the world of filmmaking, but some people still prefer some good ol’ fashioned elbow grease.

Well, Hoang and his small crew of 3 people created all the animation seen using 3,000 photographs — photos that were shot frame by frame and individually cut out by hand.

Epic Stop-Motion Batman Short Created with Action Figures

Filmmakers Derek Kwok and Henri Wong of Parabucks created this ridiculously awesome stop-motion short film titled “Batman: Dark Knightfall” using highly-realistic 1/6-scale collectible action figures by Hong Kong toy company Hot Toys. Be sure to turn on HD when you watch it.

The cinematic lighting and sound effects give this film a realism that you’ll be hard pressed to find in a stop-motion video — at times you won’t believe that what you’re seeing isn’t showing real actors.

Beautiful Stop Motion and Time Lapse Tour of Paris

Nothing like starting off the weekend with some gorgeous footage of the City of Lights. This video comes courtesy of motion time lapse and stop motion photographer Mayeul Akpovi and is an awesome example of exactly those two things. Combining three thousand night shots and day shots with different landmarks and locations and a slew of different time lapse techniques really brings out a new side of the beautiful French capital.

Stop Motion Uses 7,000 Sticky Notes to Bring Super Mario to Life

Surprisingly enough, this isn’t the first time somebody has recreated Super Mario using sticky notes, nor is it the first time we’ve featured it, but given the improved production value and the fact that this one comes complete with a behind the scenes video… well… we couldn’t help ourselves.

So up top you’ll find a downright awesome recreation of Super Mario (and a few of his pixelated buddies) using 7,000 sticky notes. While down below you’ll find a behind the scenes video showing how Mario went from piles of multi-colored Post-its to stop motion character. Read more…

Time-Lapse of a Man Sorting 65,000 LEGO Blocks Over 71 Hours

Stop-motion projects often require mind-blowing amounts of work and preparation. Just how mind-blowing? Music duo Daniel Larsson and Tomas Redigh (AKA Rymdreglage) recently poured out 100 boxes of LEGO pieces that each contained 650 blocks. They then had two cameras snap a photo every 20 seconds as they spent a whopping 71 hours sorting by color. The time-lapse video was created using the 12,775 photos that each memory card ended up with.

Stop Motion Music Video Featuring 500+ Girls Holding iPads

Orrin Hastings spent three months creating this stop-motion music video for the song “This Man’s Brighter Days” by abe&tell. He roamed the streets of Sydney asking 500+ girls to hold up an iPad containing one still frame extracted from a video. Played back, the stop motion contains a video-within-a-video. The concept is very similar to the J.Views video we shared a couple months back, except that one used actual prints.

Stop Motion of a 35mm Film Roll Loading Itself Into a Camera

Here’s a fun little 30-second stop motion video showing a roll of 35mm film loading itself into a camera. It was created as a project for a photography class.

An Engine Rebuilding Stop-Motion Created Over 11 Months

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.

Time-Lapse of a Water Drop Splash

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.
