Inner Beauty

Check this latest Honda ad from Wieden+Kennedy London. Is it stop motion? CG? Or is this real life?

Wanna know how they did it? The behind the scenes is cooler than the ad.

Stripped-Down Stop Motion

Today’s post is an 18+ video filled with number of nudies rolling about on a tarp.

This stop-motion spot was shot over 3 days and contains 100 stark-naked people. Over 2,000 images were taken and stitched together to make this really cool final spot for Withings – a company that creates apps and products for well-being. Man+Hatchet is the creative agency behind this concept.

The Art of Raw

This commercial for G-Star Raw features some pretty amazing animation. How amazing? It almost made me overlook the Skrillex soundtrack. By Glassworks Amsterdam.

Stop-Motion Knitting

This is an adorable stop-motion/live-motion advert from TBWA Brussels promoting Aardgas, a natural gas provider. It illustrates that natural gas is the perfect complement to solar energy. Especially in a country that doesn’t get sun year-round. A country like Belgium.

The film was directed by Olivier Babinet and produced by Lovo Films for the Belgian Natural Gas Association.

Why You Should Hire Interns

AlmapBBDO in Brazil has launched a new spot for Getty using 873 stock photos to create a stop-motion spot that is pretty mind-blowing. Pay attention to how one photo seamlessly flows into the next.

Sure this creative speaks to the vast quantity and cross-section of stock photography in Getty’s bank, but I just keep wondering how long it took the interns to go through, and collect all of these photos.

Welcome to the agency!

Marsha was only at the agency for two weeks before she started keeping a bottle vodka in her top drawer.

Coming in for a Branding

Oslo Airport and their agency Dinamo recently teamed up with Passion Pictures to spread the word that the airport is expanding. The project will be completed in 2017 and will host 28 million passengers every year. To spread the word, they created this fantastic stop motion animation spot, using a two meter long miniature of the airport.

Friday Morning Movie: The Eagleman Stag

Watching this award-winning short film, I knew within the first few seconds that this was our post for the day. The stop-motion video is dark, sad, yet humourous. But the most amazing part is that it was created with all white scalpel-cut figures.

Directed by Michael Please, the short film tackles the subject of time, and how it speeds up as you age. This is eight minutes that you don’t want to miss. Hope your coffee is full.

Friday Morning Movie: Out of a Forest

I chose today’s film (by Tobias Gundorff Boesen) because I liked the mix of stop motion with live action. It’s won a ton of awards and appeared at countless film festivals.

It was shot in the forests surrounding Viborg, Denmark. There’s no talking in the movie – in fact, it’s almost like a music video, set to the song “Slow Show” by The National. But it’s endearing. And dark. And kind of sad.

Friday Morning Movie: The Wolf I Used to Be

Happy Friday! I’m heading down to Seattle today for my #2DaysinSeattle excursion so this is a short post.

Today’s video is called The Wolf I Used to Be and was created by Nearly Normal Creative Production Studio. (Check out their site. They do some pretty neat stuff.) Pay attention to the detail in this video. The amount of work that must have gone into the film is almost hard to grasp. It’s all stop-motion and everything is built out of paper. It was a collaborative effort where many different artists would work on the project, some for longer than others. The result is magnificent.

Enjoy your weekend.

Friday Movie: The Forest

This animated short has a fascinating style. The forest looks Seussical, and the rest of the movie is interspersed with  what appears to be stop-motion and paper-cut outs. The voice-over is perfectly cast and the message is solid. (Pay attention to the signs in the background.) The film is six minutes long and was created by David Scharf, and produced by Augusburg University of Applied Sciences.
