Stop-Motion Music Video: Hudson – Against the Grain

2

Hudson is an emerging indie-folk musical artist. A stop-motion video was created for one of his songs. View the video and see how this clever video was made.

Hudson is an emerging indie-folk project by Australian singer Travis Aulsebrook. For the video of one of his songs "Against The Grain“ he collaborated with film-maker and animator Jonathan Chong to create a simple stop-motion animation of colored pencils. This may sound boring, but it’s cleverly done and it’s definitely worth having a look at. View the entire video below.

A total of 920 pencils were used to create the video and the entire video clip is made up of 5,125 individual images. There is also a behind-the-scenes video of Jonathan Chong working on the video. It shows how much time and effort went into every little sequence of the clip. View the video below to see how they came up with the idea and how they shot the entire sequence.

“Against The Grain“ is from Hudson’s “Open Up Slowly” EP, released just last January 10, 2011. As for his main influences, Aulsebrook names Tunng and Iron & Wine. I hope you enjoyed the song and the music video as much as I did. Since this is Hudson’s debut EP and first video clip, I’m looking forward to hearing more beautiful music and seeing more creative videos from this emerging singer.

    Several months ago, Simeon Smith recorded all the bleeps, whirs, clanks and snaps that analogue cameras make. He then used these samples to create rhythms and textures for his music. He has since ventured into other projects, and recently made a music video using the LomoKino and an Actionsampler.

    Happenings on Film: Graffiti Contest for Expo 2015

    On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.

    The Konstruktor Project by David Townsend

    One Christmas, David Townsend was given the Konstruktor by his wife. It sparked an idea in his head, taking inspiration from Jack Lowe's Lifeboat Station project and his love for photography. He built and beautifully customised the Konstruktor and has just embarked on his own long term analogue project, because a camera is for life, not just for Christmas. Learn more about his project in this interview.

    Chlorophyll Prints by Binh Danh: An Interview

    In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series "Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War" he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
