Most animators really get into their work. And some people take this notion to extremes. Extremes that the rest of us sit back and admire. Showing here:
Yes, in case you were wondering, it’s a video that’s supposed to be viral in support of the Samsung G800. Stop motion appears to be the advertising animation technique of choice, I guess.
What can you do with a canvas made up of 150 shirts and an intern?
I know, it sounds like a very obscure dirty joke. But no. You can make a stop-motion commercial for a sandwich shop that’s actually pretty sweet. Well, you could. But it’s a lot easier to just watch this one from Erbert and Gerbert’s Subs and Clubs, because it’s already done.
Make sure you go to their website where they’ve got a making-of video online.
If this were a real cartoon, I would be glad to put it in the Needcoffee.com Saturday Morning Cartoon Line-Up. It would be a nice counterpoint to Grant Morrison’s SuperFriends and The Adventures of Barry Ween.
More from Animation Treasures, because the art is just too good not to mention.
First up, there’s the opening pan from Disney’s Cinderella. (snippet pictured). Then there’s the “Pastoral Symphony” from Fantasia and another pan from Bambi.
Update: Animation Treasures is no more, but there is a similar site up now at Animation Backgrounds.
Apparently this was accomplished with a total of 987 Polaroid photos, so I would figure this process would be called… Polaroidamation. Or something. But still, apparently no CG assistance. It’s like the little brother of the “Sledgehammer” video. Um. Or something.
