My Stop Motion Fetish

My Stop Motion Fetish

I absolutely love the stop motion process. You take a sequence of pictures capturing the same object in slightly different positions and when it’s animated or pieced together into a reel, your still images have the illusion of movement! Sheer Genius.


To jump start my week a classy designer I know, my very good friend, Oscar Furtado sent me a link to a video called The Pen Story. This amazing display of creative genius, utilizing over 60,000 pictures, animates a story of a life with my new fave technique, Stop Motion, left me speechless.

 


Needless to say, after watching this vid I had to watch the second production entitled Pen Giant (pictured above) where Olympus cameras contracted the source of their inspiration forThe Pen Story, 26 year old director, Takeuchi Taijin.
