Clever and creative stuff

Here’s a new use for Google Streetview: creating a backdrop for a stop motion animation. Really, really clever. I like this.

Here’s the blurb from the Vimeo page:

Google Street View stop motion animation short made as a personal project by director Tom Jenkins.

Story: A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can – using a toy car and Google Maps Street View.

All screen imagery was animated – there are no screen replacements.

Produced, animated, filmed, lit, edited & graded by Tom Jenkins (theoryfilms.co.uk /facebook.com/theoryfilms – !NEW MAKING OF PICS ON FB PAGE!).

Shot using Canon 5d MkII, Dragonframe Stop Motion software and customised slider.

Music by the wonderfull Cinematic Orchestra (cinematicorchestra.com)
