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.

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.

Amazing Stop Motion Music Video Using 2000 Photos Held Up by 300 Fans

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.

Stop-Motion Music Video Showing Board Games Being Sliced and Diced

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.

Animation took a total of 32 days. You can find more background information and photos here.
