What the what! This isn’t even possible. This must have taken half their lives. (via drawn)
This great stop-motion animation was written, directed, animated and scored by Hayley Morris for the Advertising Council’s 57th Annual Service Award Dinner to introduce a series of health commercials that were produced this year. Really fun stuff, I especially enjoy the constant fluid/flowing motion of the clay even as the figures are still. Also check out her short film Undone that won Best Animated Short at Slamdance 2009. Time to go for a run.
The 2010 cavalcade of incredible stop motion films continues with a great new advert for the Moleskine Mini by Rogier Wieland based in the Netherlands.
For the new extra small planners/diaries series from Moleskine I made a stopmotion animation, focussing on the bright colors of the diaries and trying to add some surprises to them. The video was made using the original extra small planners. Only the 533 animated pages have been reproduced in Illustrator, printed out on Moleskine paper, cut out and glued inside the planners for each single frame to shoot.
