‘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.
