Stop frame photography

 

Stop-motion animation is one of the simplest, most fun animation techniques. Mix equal parts digital camera, computer, and imagination (you’ve got all three), and you’re on your way.

You can use just about anything in your stop-motion animation, and thanks to digital cameras and computers, creating one is now super easy.

Watch the latest  short video, that took 4 days of graffiti artist Inkfetish (www.inkfetish.co.uk)

Um Bongo.

It's now almost twenty years since the first airing of the Um Bongo jingle with its inspirational animation by the legendary Oscar Grillo.

According to Inkfetish website, "the video encompasses the results of 4 days of blood sweat and tears filming in an abandoned warehouse in South London using the ’stop frame’ technique to animate my artwork…a slow, painful but ultimately very satisfying method of working."

Merge thinks this vid shows it was worth every minute. Sweet finish and detail.
