1,556 Instagram pics create stop-motion animation
Instagram may now have video, but stitched-together photos are far more fun to watch. This zany short is perfect for summer's start.
If you have the time and patience, stop-motion animation can be oodles of fun to create, especially if you have a flair for wacky scenes.
Their latest production is "Instagramimation," described as "a stop-motion adventure through the world of Instagram."
Created by Paul B. Cummings and Eriq Wities, the funny 3-minute short consists of 1,556 Instagram photos stitched together to create a flowing narrative.
Seen on an iPhone screen in the Instagram app, the story follows a hapless character who's trying to enjoy a day at the beach. But the animator has other things in mind.
There are some interesting camera tricks, including levitation, as well as interaction between the character and the animator's world.
To prove they made the film with photos, Cummings and Eriq Wities have made every pic available on Friends in Faux's Instagram site.
There's also a "making of" video here, showing how they shot the initial images, edited them, then shot another round of photos with the animator.
Here's the short. Enjoy!
