Friday Night Flicks: Michael Kohlweg

Ooops! I had today’s flick selected and then forgot about posting it. Here it is, just a little later than usual. I selected it because I am doing another 99 day project this year and this is a compilation from a 100 day project Michael Kohlweg completed three years ago.

From Kohlweg‘s Vimeo post:

For this years 100 Day Challenge I chose to learn and practice something I have been interested in for a while: stop motion animation. Each day I animated a 1 inch paper box doing or being various things. The proverbial box I created around this work helped to focus on crafting a narrative each day, and to learn how physical things move in a natural way. This is a compiled reel of all 100 days to see how I progressed over those few months.

 

 

Most impressive work for a beginner! You might want to spend a few minutes this weekend scrolling through Kohlweg‘s Instagram account or looking at some of his other videos on Vimeo.
