We Have Band: You Came Out

December 8, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Stumbled onto this 2009 stop motion video for You Came Out by We Have Band, it’s lovely if not slightly bizarre.

The face paint animation film is made up of 4,816 separate stills. Each and every frame was hand-painted, shot, wiped off and redrawn, slightly differently for the next frame in order to create a seamless sequence. This time-consuming process involved the band members lying still for two consecutive days in a studio.

In order to animate the singing bit, lip movement was created by animating a painted mouth on the singer Dede. This involved breaking the lyrics into phonetics and giving each sound a specific mouth shape. To make this as realistic as possible all the mouth shapes were painted on Dedes face individually and then shot. All 4,816 frames of the music video can be found on Flickr

If you’re lucky enough to live in Italy they’ll be in Milan tomorrow night and Bologna on Friday. (via polkadot)

Stop-Motion Ad for Moleskine Mini

December 3, 2010

Christopher Jobson

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.

Cheers! Beautiful viral advert for SHIRO

December 2, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Oh this is really special. A long-form, somewhat quirky advertisement for SHIRO, a Japanese brand of shōchū. You’ve probably noticed I kind of have a thing for Rube Goldberg-related related stuff and this is no exception despite its digital interventions. (via booooooom)

A killer timelapse video by Chicago photographer Chris Pritchard. “Cycles of Light is a reel of timelapse material shot in 2010 by Chris Pritchard, highlighting the neverending cycles of movement and light through the city and sky.” Some exquisite moments of Chicago caught on film.
