Stop Motion

Stop motion is a form that is universally appealing as it is a bit of video magic. Its playful and visually interesting. While it is time and patience intensive, it is extremely rewarding upon completion.

Museum of Science and Industry, "Failure Is An Option"

This video is one in a series showing at the LEGO Brick by Brick exhibit at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. This specific video relied on the use of archival footage paired with stop motion animation to show various instances where design failed, but because of that, the structures were rebuilt stronger than ever. Very fun project. LEGOs are a mainstay in hobby stop motion, and getting to use them for a professional project was fantastic.

Note: There is no sound as these videos play in each section of the exhibit, in the same space.

Contours, Bravo Potty Seat

Seattle's Best Stop Motion

Seattle’s Best Coffee was going through a re-branding of some of their coffee varieties and Big Teeth worked with Zeno Group to come up with a social-friendly video to announce the change. The solution was a stop motion animation simulation of the infamous Instagram swipe and like using paper cut-outs and lots of pre-production planning to make sure our swipe was straight.
