countless frames of beauty and youth

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 olivia bee. she’s a teenager who takes photos that exude youth. i think we’ll probably be seeing her around quite often. check out her flickr for more of her stop-motion videos.

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?

    Thanks for sharing these fun videos! Stop motion animation is a lot of fun to play around with. I was lucky enough to have a high school art teacher who taught me the basics. You can use Adobe Image ready to do some pretty cool stuff. Have fun playing!
