Given the high number of views, I am obviously not the first one to talk about this stunning stop motion video.

They shot 60,000 pictures, developed 9,600 prints and then again shot over 1,800 pictures. And apparently without any post production! Stunning, right?

(thank you Markus)

  1. Beautiful; moving; clever.

  2. Wow, this is so great, and makes me to buy a new camera..

  3. Buy an Olympus PEN camera perhaps?

  4. Any one know who made the music? What is the name of the song?

  5. Just the labor of editing this could be called post-production… anyway, great video.

  6. @Steve: according to google the song is “Down Below” by Johannes Stankowski.

  7. This made me smile so big today, thank you!

  8. Absolutely right! Sweet, stunning, moving… I’m gonna repost it… THANKS!

  9. Ahhh! Why does he leave his family halfway through?! Does it have anything to do with the man he spends New Year’s Eve with? There’s some real ambiguous human drama happening here.

  10. But then you must also see this one (which to my mind is even better ;)

    “Wolf and Pig”

  11. Wow that’s awesome! I love these stop motion videos, but that one was really unique…cause they took pictures OF pictures haha. Awesome!!

  12. Really impressive. Watched it a couple of times.

    Might just watch it again now ;)

  13. Oh wow! That’s amazing! I lost track of the story, but loved watching it and am boggled by the amount of work that’s gone into that!

  14. This is a stolen idea from the short movie “Wolf and Pig”

    shame shame shame

  15. Amazing….!
    and I loved the little Swiss souvenir cow bell too.

  16. Wonderful!

  17. This is a completely stolen idea and was noted on Gizmodo’s blog:

    Olympus and their advertising agency, Mullen, has also stolen artists’ work for a more recent commercial. John Grider’s murals & Kevin Cyr’s camper bike were both copied for Olympus’ PEN E-PL1 camera:

    If you support the ideas and creativity of artists don’t support a company who steals ideas to sell a product.

  18. I love this video! They actually made another one with giant billboards. AND the new one was directed by the guy who did the above mentioned Wolf & Pig. All is right in the world.

    You can see it here: or on my blog :)
