i was going to come on here and talk about how under the weather i’ve been and share the few photos i’ve had the energy to take all week. but then, i became inspired by these anything but under-the-weather short films (really short, like seconds, mostly) and i can’t resist sharing them. i’m not normally a video kinda gal. mainly it slows down my computer. and i don’t really know how to search youtube for stuff i like. but in the past weeks, i’ve come across a few that make me wanna start a new hobby (no, i can’t afford it! perhaps i can learn for work?). i’ve already made my desire known on facebook and have requested the help of a few friends who are more gifted in the motion picture area than i.
today i’m showing you stop-motion films, which i don’t completely understand yet, but if i’m right, it’s actually a whole bunch of connected frames to give the illusion of movement. it’s a pretty basic concept, but i’m wowwed by it (maybe it’s the meds i’m on for a sinus infection? not sure).
so here we go. the first is a beautifully whimsical film by angela kohler, the woman behind the cool kindle commercial and makes you want one even though you really don’t.
NOW’S WHEN YOU TURN UP THE VOLUME
and because i just can’t resist, here’s that kindle film by kohler:
now doesn’t that make you want to go outside and take some pictures?
