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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
