Rollin Street and Stop Action Video

If you’ve seen the video clip advert thingie I was hired to shoot called “Rollin Street”, in collaboration with Flying Spot Seattle, you might guess that it’s trendy (but cool and fun!) to make a movie using still images (and video) sequenced together. Some are intentionally cut roughly (like the Rollin Street piece we did), whereas others are more smooth (requires more shots lumped together).

Strangely, although the Rollin Street “story” has been here on the site for a long time, I received several emails and questions about it this past week. I like the Rollin Street vid (although I wish it was able to be the more significant piece it was when originally concepted), but it the emails I received this week made me want to point to a different stop-action piece I really liked a while back called Tony vs. Paul. Forgive me if you’ve seen it before, as it’s been out a long while, with over 2 mil views on YouTube. Regardless I hope it’s useful to the several of you who have emailed me lately on the topic and at least of interest to the rest of us:

    I know. If you check out the header on YouTube, Paul and Tony answer a few questions like how long it took ‘em to make it, etc. They sat in front of Final Cut and Photoshop for a couple of months…

    I love this video! I also really liked “Rollin Street” What was the original concept and why was it changed?

    dexter23: the original concept was for “day in the life” vid, start to finish. due to budget constraints (shooting this and putting it together is very expensive if you’re doing it thru agencies…) we had to abort the bigger vision for some smaller vignettes. like I said, cool either way but I wish it was the big kahuna ;)

I have been brooding about in case your hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, however sluggish loading instances times will sometimes affect your placement in google and can harm your high quality score if advertising with Adwords. Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my email and could look out for a lot more of your respective interesting content. Make sure you replace this again very soon..
