Stop Animation + Kinko's = One Rad Music Video

One of my favorite email newsletters is by the fine folks a Photojojo, who are always sharing cool things to do with your camera.

Today's email features this awesome stop-animation music video of the Modest Mouse song "Missed the Boat" created by Max Tyrie and his friends. In a quote from Wooster Collective, Max says:

"Myself and a couple have friends have entered the above into the Modest Mouse video competition. Using green screen footage provided by the band we cut a simple music video. We then degraded the images and printed out each frame sequentially. (all 4133 of them) We then nailed each "shot" of 50-100 posters to various structures and posts. Then using a digital SLR camera with a long exposure we frame by frame shot each poster. Oh, and theres a little video projection (again, frame by frame on the SLR) just to mix it up. There is no compositing, no shortcuts, just lots of blood, sweat and tears, and a huge Kinkos bill!"
