What Light: A Stop Motion Animation

Check out this cool video we found while lurking around the Internet. Witness the power of light as it gets manipulated in this amazing stop-motion video.

Screenshot from ‘What Light’ on youtube

‘What Light’ is a stop-motion animation using sunlight. It was done using paper cut-outs as stencils to form text and shapes placed over windows and other light sources. They also used mirrors to manipulate the direction of the light while taking photographs of each frame. The images are then edited in a computer and the result of this painstaking process is an awesome, awesome animation.

Here’s the video:
