The PEN Story

Introduced in 1959, the Olympus PEN was one of the smallest cameras at the time, and was as easy to carry around as a pen. Back in 2009, Olympus celebrated the 50th anniversary of their PEN range by creating a beautiful stop-motion video that shows a boy taking a journey through time to adulthood.

An impressive 60 000 shots were taken in 20 different locations; of those pictures, 9600 prints were developed and 1800 pictures were re-shot. The results are fantastic – see The PEN Story below.

If you liked it, then you should also take a look at A Wolf Loves Pork – it’s the work of Takeuchi Taijin that inspired the Olympus team to create their video.

VIDEOGIOCO is unusual and violently so. Conceived by Donato Sansone, VIDEOGIOCO combines doodling with stop-motion filming to create something quite unique, and so very odd. It has a killer ending, which also happens to be its beginning. Have a look below.

VIDEOGIOCO means videogame in Italian.

DEADLINE: An Awesome Post-it Stop Motion

Bang-yao Liu is a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design and for his senior project, he made this most brilliant (and insanely time-consuming) stop-motion using Post-It notes. He animates a wall of coloured Post-Its around his desk to symbolize his struggles with work stress and deadlines. Liu had this to say:

Where my idea comes from is that every time when I am busy, I feel that I am not fighting with my works, I am fighting with those post-it notes and deadline.

Check out DEADLINE below or watch it in high quality at YouTube.
