Being a fan of Stop Motion videos. This technique really does allow room for your creativity to blossom. In basic terms, the process of stop motion is taking a still frame of an object, moving the object a bit, and taking another frame. Repeat this process, hundreds or thousands of times and you have a stop motion video!
Her Morning Elegance / Oren Lavie
This is the most viewed stop motion video on YouTube and rightly so. It’s one of the best examples I’ve seen that makes full use of the stop motion technique, with a number of sequences that would only be possible if done in stop motion.
Western Spaghetti by PES
This has become one of the most popular stop motion videos about, as it does a fantastic job of showing what can be done using stop motion that other techniques would not be able to achieve.
Rymdreglage – 8-bit trip
1500 hours of moving legobricks and taking photos of them. Enjoy.
Short, fun, and again, a great example of the benefits of stop motion.
Stop motion with wolf and pig
Now this is truly unique. A stop motion within a stop motion – I can’t even begin to fathom the amount of time that must have been spent putting this together.
Corey and Rachel’s Wedding Invitation
The video took about 5 months overall to make; 1 month to learn how to do stop motion and about 4 months to actually shoot and edit the video of over 5,500 pictures taken.
Another example of a stop motion video that has become extremely popular, despite the fact that it’s a single shot of one room. A single shot becomes a blank canvas to work with when it comes to stop motion.
Big Bang Big Boom
An unscientific point of view on the beginning and evolution of life and how it could probably end. This is a long one but it could be the pick of the lot. Sit back for 10 minutes and gaze in amazement at this masterpiece.
This is special. The amount of thought, talent and skill that has gone into this is incredible and the clay modelling is just superb.
Eatliz – Lose This Child
This took 6 months work and over 5000 frames. The number of frames do not tell the whole story in this case though, as this film brings sand sculptures to life, which is no quick task!
All of these clips deserve a wider audience! So do them a favour and share this article with your friends and followers!
Colour in Web Design – Red
Posted on 14 April 2011 | 1 Comment
Red is a powerful colour, commonly used in an intense bold format to communicate a number of emotions including anger, love and passion. It is said to enthuse and stimulate an action and can even cause your pulse rate to increase.
Red can be very effective when used with black, white and shades of grey and can be used to make certain areas of your page stand to attention. When used in high volume, a darker tone is best to use in order to maintain ease on the eye, whereas lighter tones can appear harsh and unappealing when used to fill large areas.
It’s also used to create a warm atmosphere, along with orange and yellow.
I have selected a list of 20 websites that utilise the colour red to outstanding effect, from subtle to high volume usage.
