Stop Motion Animation with Knitting

Knitting is getting quite a bit of coverage on PetaPixel this week. Just a couple days ago we featured the surreal knitting photographs of Daniela Edburg. The above is an creative commercial for natural gas by TBWA Brussels and directed by Olivier Babinet. What’s amazing is that all the stop-motion animation you see is done using wool and a team of super dedicated knitters. They’ve also released a behind the scenes video showing how the commercial was made.

I love this kind of effort because it shows you how much you can do with good ol’ fashioned hard work and perseverance.

Update: Rather than “knitting”, the process is probably better described as “un-knitting”.
