“stop-motion (also known as stop-action or frame-by-frame) is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence.” (wikied)
My brother, Josh, showed me this music video by Oren Lavie, called “Her Morning Elegance.” It’s done in stop motion format — very cool idea. Josh is a film major and also doing a project in stop motion. To do his project, he borrowed a camera bag full of camera goodies I got off of ebay for $90. The bag has an old Canon AE-1 35mm camera, a telephoto lens, filters, and other neat pieces of equipment for old school camera fun. He dropped off two rolls of film today to get developed. It’s so weird that I developed film at one point in my life — and lots of it!
