Love is Making Its Way Back Home
So, this isn't strictly a print piece, but other than the software used to arrange the frames, this video was made entirely out of sheets of laser cut paper. No special effects, no processing, just thousands and thousands of sheets of paper, a camera, and lots of patience.
It's incredible how smooth the motions are, considering how many sheets of paper with slightly different images it takes to create motion. Negative space is created by just cutting out parts of the paper, resulting in a simple, but communicative and very graphic style. Clearly, lots of prep and planning went into this shoot, before and after the cameras were set up. And just wait for the colour palette shift at the end, it's pretty magical.
