Filmmaker, graffiti artist, and photographer Erdal Inci lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey where he has been experimenting with cloned motion in video since 2004. Over the past few months Inci has converted several of these hypnotic videos into gifs and posted them online, above are a couple of my favorites.

Though I just posted about these guys back in July, I’m not going to lie, I have a huge e-crush on RRRRRRRROLL (previously). This anonymous collective of five photographers and artists create a new animated GIF every single week that might as well arrive in my feed reader wrapped in a bow. Do yourself a favor and follow their Tumblr, bookmark it, subscribe to their feed … whatever. It’s like internet vitamins.

Netherlands based designer Rogier Wieland (previously) has just completed another one of his impressive stop motion ads for Moleskin that relies almost entirely on notebooks to create nearly every aspect of the animation including the precisely cut typography. The making-of video is pretty great too and I’ve included it here as well.

Rot: A Terrifying Facepaint Stop Motion by Erica Luke

This is bar-none one of the creepiest things to ever appear on Colossal, but it’s Halloween and this clip is so well animated I couldn’t pass it up. UK artist and illustrator Erica Luke depicts rot and and decay with this super spooky stop motion video made with facepaint. Sound by Matthew Perryman. Man this gives me the heebie jeebies.

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.

In 2011 kinetic artists Mark Rosen and Wendy Marvel created a series of wonderful mechanical flipbooks based on the work of Eadweard Muybridge, the guy responsible for pioneering photographic studies of motion. After touring a few art galleries and making a well-received appearance at the 2012 Maker Faire the duo teamed up with manufacturing designer Steven Goldstein to create kits that mere mortals such as you and I can use to create nostalgic moving pictures of our own design. If you’re as ridiculously excited about this project as I am, head on over to Kickstarter to pledge a few bucks.

Mysteries of Vernacular: Quirky Animations Explore the Meaning of Language

Mysteries of Vernacular: Quirky Animations Explore the Meaning of Language stop motion language etymology books animation

Mysteries of Vernacular is an ongoing video series by NYC-based Myriapod Productions that explores the etymology of individual words through a carefully animated book. According to Myriapod the series will eventually include 26 stories, each of which takes nearly 80 hours to research, construct and animate. Since taking Latin in high school I’ve been keenly aware of the bizarre ways in which different cultures appropriate and modify language, but this series really casts an engaging light on the whole messy ordeal.
