Art Class Advertising Reinvented: A Stop Motion Video Using Stills Taken from a Life Drawing Course stop motion drawing animation advertising

How do you advertise a life drawing course? You could photocopy posters from the last session for the umpteenth time and hang them on a wall, or maybe take out a tiny ad in the local paper and hope some people show up. Except that’s what we’ve been doing for decades. Creative duo Wriggles & Robbins decided to take a new approach in this brief clip advertising drawing courses at The Book Club in London. Using photographed stills of the students’ work-in-progress the team created this lovely stop motion video the that does an extraordinary job of capturing the energy, perspective and fun of a life-drawing class. Really cool, I wish it went on for another minute or so. (via it’s nice that)

This is a fun clip by Berlin-based animator Annette Jung of Talking Animals that captures a sizeable repertoire of Michael Jackson’s dance moves using only pixelated Lego bricks. The sound really adds to the experience, headphones/speakers recommended. (via laughing squid)

Revolution: The Lifecycle of Water Told in a Stop Motion Pop-Up Book

Revolution: The Lifecycle of Water Told in a Stop Motion Pop Up Book water stop motion pop ups paper books animation

This blog has seen it’s fair share of pop-up books, and animation using paper, but this might be the first where everything comes together in a single piece. Revolution is an animated short by photographer Chris Turner, paper engineer Helen Friel and animator Jess Deacon that explores the life cycle of a single drop of water through the pages of an elaborate pop-up book. The book contains nine scenes that were animated using 1,000 photographic stills shot over the course of a year. (via faith is torment)

Is this the first music video made exclusively with embroidery and sewing implements? I’m gambling yes. Directed, filmed, and produced by Christophe Thockler the clip uses 10,000 photographs of needles, thread, cloth and embroidery, mixed with clever lighting techniques to produce a fun video for Favorite Place, the latest track by US pop rock band Black Books.

Animated Music Video for Bonobo by Cyriak Using Repurposed 1960s Stock Footage

Animated Music Video for Bonobo by Cyriak Using Repurposed 1960s Stock Footage music video animation

This new music video by Cyriak Harris for Bonobo almost defies description, but if you recall the trippy video he did for Eskmo featured here about two years ago you’ll have an idea of where it’s going. Cyriak uses mid 20th-century stock video as building blocks to create machines, robots, and other bizarre tableaus reminiscent of Terry Gilliam-esque zoetropes. I just said that. Terry Gilliam-esque zoetropes. What does that even mean? Watch the video and I challenge you to describe it any better. (via lustik)

Update: According to Jeff over at Booooooom, Cyriak was inspired by the 1981 film Tango by Zbigniew Rybczynski.

Sit back, turn up the volume and set this video to full-screen. Behold the lastest stop motion music video from animation duo Katarzyna Kijek and Przemysław Adamski (previously here and here) for Japanese singer-songwriter Shugo Tokumaru. The video was launched just this morning courtesy of Pitchfork and features a brilliant, continuous parade of what must be thousands of cut paper and foam core silhouettes set to Tokumaru’s quirky track Katachi.

The Deep End: A Jaw-Dropping Animation Drawn by Hand with Ink, White-out, and Coffee by Jake Fried

Boston-based animator Jake Fried just released his latest psychedelic animation, The Deep End, which was drawn entirely with ink, coffee, and white-out. The animation is continually layered on top of itself as forms morph, bend and transform across the screen. I can’t help but wonder how thick the final canvas is with so many layers of illustration. If you were as blown away by this as I was, you’re in luck: see some of his earlier animations such as Sick Leave and Waiting Room.
