Stop Motion: Her Morning Elegance.

I have written about stop motion before. It's a video / animation technique I really like, especially when it's applied in new and original ways.

One of the most impressive stop-motion videos I've ever seen is Oren Lavie's music video 'Her Morning Elegance', which has received several awards and has been nominated for a Grammy.

The video consists of 2096 still images, played as a sequence to give the illusion of motion.

It's so well done, and I love the song and its lyrics - but I'll let you judge for yourself:

If you want to know more about how they made this video, have a look at the 'making of' and the photo gallery on the project's website. You can also order photographs from the video.

  1. That is so cool, K.C. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh, yeah, I saw that video when it first came out. I can't imagine how much work that must have been to put together.

  3. @Karen: wonderful, isn't it. :-)

    @Angela: with our students we've made very short stop motion videos (less than half a minute), and we tend to need the better part of an afternoon just to prepare, set up and photograph. I'm sure professionals are more efficient, but still ...

  4. Oh, yes. I've seen that one. It is amazing. And beautiful. Must have taken forever to do.

  5. Wow, the work that went into this is so incredible! Thanks for sharing this. :-)

  6. Wow - that was so beautiful! Thanks for that, K.C - I hadn't come across this before and will need to tell my daughter about it.

  7. Great video! (my Mum above shared the link with me) You have a beautiful blog. Vikki

  8. @L.G. I only discovered it recently, but it seems to be quite famous. :-)

    @Carol: I've watched it several times now and I'm still amazed. So much detail ...

    @Rosemary: thanks for passing it on! :-)

    @Vikki: thanks, and great to meet you. :-)

  9. I love, love, love this video. First saw it in 2009 and fell in love back then,

  10. Hi Suze :-) I think it's one of those pieces of art with a timeless quality. It'll remain great - at least for as long as we can preserve and watch videos.
