Vinyl Waveform Sculpture

This is a video that embodies a challenging and superb idea, directed by Us and produced by Liz Kessler, labelled the new music video for Benga’s track ‘I Will Never Change’. To bring the astonishing idea to life, first of all, the number of records per second against the frame rate had to be calculated. This stop motion video employs the use of 960 pieces of vinyl to create a straightforward and creative way to let the music speak for itself and create a mirrored image of the digital waveform. Each record had to be individually cut to a specific size, hand labelled, hand numbered and then finally polished.

According to the authors, this process alone took seven full working days. To animate the wave form, they have built it and then carefully removed each individual record. Once the sculpture was finally built, the animation process took about 30 hours. You might say, that the final video came out great and features some incredible animation. See for yourself.

Squeeze Me

Stopmotion video for Dutch artists Kraak & Smaak (which means “Crunch and Taste”) overlays the background with a simple, but clever gimmick – a flipbook for animating the foreground elements. Nice way how to catch a moment and make them flow like river.

Adobe Photoshop Cook

A video made in stopmotion for competition AdobeYouGC. The simulation of a tutorial which shows how to make the lovely butter cookies with the new Adobe Photoshop Cook! Whole set was made with cardboard and with kitchen utensils.
