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.

Torn Paper Sculptures by Anna-Wili Highfield

Wonderful paper animal sculptures by Sydney-based artist Anna-Wili Highfield.

The paper sculptures are created from archival cotton paper, that is painted, then sewn together, to create the figure of an animal. The copper pipe is bent and manipulated to create sculptural forms reminiscent of line drawings.

I grew up in a house where the sound of my mom’s sewing machine was constantly hammering away in the background, so it’s easy for me to appreciate how much time it must take Lauren DiCioccio to make these pieces with just a needle and thread. Especially enjoy her sewnnews series. (via who killed bambi)

Another great video short today by Feedmee Design, shot as an intro for the German film competition Kurzundschön (Short & Nice). Another ongoing Colossal theme in this video: my unabashed love for weightlessness in film. (via fubiz)
