Fantastic Stop Motion!
Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie - nominated for a Grammy in the Best Short Form Music Video category
Absolutely stunning effects done via stop motion. Love the song too :)
Fun Facts from Oren's MySpace:
* The video was shot all stills - roughly 3225 still photos for the entire video, using one camera, hanging from the ceiling for the main body of the movie.
* It took 4 weeks before shooting to create an animated computer generated storyboard for the video, with 3d dummies for the characters.
* It took only 2 days of shooting for the live actors on set to re-create the 3.5 minutes computer sequence, frame by frame.
* Some of the bed sheets used in the video were taken from Oren’s own bedroom and are now considered collectors items, worth at the moment not very much and therefore used as bed sheets.
