Stop-motion film 349 is based on the idea that we are all connected to each other through invisible bonds. Pittsburgh filmmaker and artist Kristen Lauth Shaeffer, with this idea, combines hand-drawn squares to create a dance animation.
Dance with hundreds of pencils and hundreds of different hands
Kristen Lauth Shaeffer; He wants more than 300 people to manually describe the frames of a filmed dance performance. In doing so, he said to have inspiration from a relationship with strong ties. Some of the participants were inspired by their family, while others were inspired by their romantic relationships. In the two-year study, each participant reflected his unique style and energy on paper. At the last stage, all these original drawings are transferred to the computer environment, arranged in the correct order and synchronized with the music. Thus they formed the units of a single dance choreography.
Drawings are extremely hearty and fun. You can see that participants reflect their feelings with all their sincerity. Sincerity in art is something that can be caught as hard as the least mastery. Perhaps for this reason, most masterfully drawn stop-motion films have a much more aesthetic appeal. The viewer is overcome with a mood that says, "Let's greet the sun every morning."
