We just found this great stop motion pop-up book about the lifecycle of a drop op water: Revolution. Nature’s rhythms in masterful paper engineering. It is a quite modern and extraordinary way of 3D storytelling. It all begins with fire – and ends with rain. And it just takes 1 minute and 45 seconds. Have a look:
The project is a one year collaboration of photographer Chris Turner, animator Jess Deacon and paper sculptor extraordinaire Helen Friel. The book contains nine scenes that were animated using 1,000 photographic stills shot over the course of a year. From original idea to execution the three artists pooled their individual talents to bring the project to life.
“Revolution” was chosen as a winner for a PDN Photo Annual Award and was also selected for the Fantoche International Animation Film Festival, the Melbourne International Animation Festival, the New Zealand International Animation Festival and London International Animation Festival.
