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.

Time-Lapse Stop-Motion Music Video by Indie Band Wildlife Control

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!
