Paper Shredder

Uploaded by Vimeo User Paul Gemignani

A Stop Animation Snowboard Film
Created By: Paul & Stephen Gemignani
Music By: Grey Storia

One snowboard shredders adventure in an unusual setting.

The Filming Process:
We started with actual sequence photos of Paul riding (taken by his brother Stephen). Then we printed each frame of the sequences on paper and cut out the rider from each one, which we used to re-create the sequences with different backdrops, creating the stop animation effect used in the video – a very SLOW process. It was challenging at times, but it came together in the end. We hope you like the film.

The Water Cycle in stop motion

Uploaded by Vimeo User Chris Turner

The video depicts the revolutionary nature of the life cycle of a droplet of water and it's cyclical journey. The project was a three-fold collaboration between myself, Helen Friel and Jess Deacon. From the original idea, through the creative development and process, our individual skill sets enabled the project to spring to life.

Tourniquet by Hem

Uploaded byYouTuber HemMusicOfficial

Published on Jan 30, 2013

Formed in 1999, Hem self-released their debut Rabbit Songs in 2002 to critical acclaim, establishing themselves as one of the most promising bands to emerge from Brooklyn. Since then, they've released four full-length albums, including the music for the 2009 Public Theatre production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Hem's extravagantly bittersweet five-years-in-the-making album, Departure and Farewell will be released on April 2nd. It's a perfect summation of this unusual chapter in the band's life, which started as a breakup before becoming a rebirth—a point lost on none of the members.
