Happy New Year! Stunning Pixilation Video

I just spotted this video on the DRAWN blog. At first glance it’s mesmerizing and has great music… but this is so much more impressive when you realize how it was created.

They used a process called pixilation, “a stop motion technique where live actors are used as a frame-by-frame subject in an animated film, by repeatedly posing while one or more frame is taken and changing pose slightly before the next frame or frames.”

The original link (HERE) has a making-of video in French with Dutch subtitles that is worth watching. This stunning video took…

  • 4 weeks of prep
  • 4 days of shooting
  • 20 “animators”
  • 288,000 tea lights!

Rather than linking a low-res Youtube version, I found a larger quicktime link below.

Happy New Year!
