From novice to mastery, one frame at a time.

“Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one’s potential.” –Bruce Lee

And yet, even if you don’t have the skills yourself, you can grow in an unusual, unique direction. Not by necessarily working hard enough to increase your physical abilities, but by creative choreography and motion, one-frame-at-a-time, as created by Corridor Digital.

Stop motion can enable you to do some amazing things, like make a cartoonish, Mortal Kombat-style suite of effects happen in what appears to be real-time.

I know I normally give you a song to go along with your weekend enjoyment, so enjoy this nearly-decade-old classic of the internet, “Amateur” by Lasse Gjertsen, who plays a song on drums and piano in stop-motion despite not knowing how to play either drums or piano.

Have a great weekend, and enjoy!
