“WoodSwimmer,” a music video made entirely of tree cross-sections

bfophoto

From the creator:

A music video made entirely from wood for a song by bedtimes.xxx/music, WoodSwimmer is based on a concept I developed while designing a new stop-motion universe where wood is the primary element. The sequences are cross-sectional photographic scans of pieces of hardwood, burls and branches. It is a straightforward technique but one which is brutally tedious to complete.

Thank you to colossal for the premiere! http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2017/06/woodswimmer-stop-motion-film/

    After reading more about it..IM still confused…How were they animated? BY taking photos of wood..but then what?

    • Scrutiny

      and then they shaved a bit more off and then took a photo of that. and they repeated that so many times with so many photos that it blends into this trippy effect when animated all in order!

  • Scrutiny

    That was mesmerizing. Amazing stuff and so tedious to produce too.
