Clever use of Post-its. Awesome Stop Motion Video.

Caught this amazing stop motion video on Clipmania on Germany's popular Euromaxx show. Found it both, immensely entertaining, and clever.

What is Stop Motion?
Stop motion is an animation technique that makes a static object appear to move via physical manipulation. The object is moved in small increments (and this is the clever, well thought-out part) between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence. Just like a flicker book on screen!

While the final result is breath-taking, stopmotion is hard work. Hats Off! to all the creative teams.
