A Stop-Motion Crochet ‘Quadropus’ Turns the City Blue

October 16, 2012

This latest music video for Wax Tailor featuring Aloe Blacc was shot by the crew over at Australian firm Oh Yeah Wow (previously) who spent over three months carefully moving a crocheted, four-legged octopus (a quadropus!) by hand using stop-motion. The end result is technically incredible despite a somewhat gloomy ending, the team’s ability to create the illusion of being underwater using just a few sparse props is commendable in and of it itself. See more making of photos here. Directed by Darcy Prendergast and Seamus Spilsbury.
