The Crossing. Chiara Ambrosio. Mixed media animation.
Really great example of actually using stills to give the illusion of animation. This artist uses photographs with effects added such as hand drawn elements and excess contrast to distort them. There is a bit of stop motion but it is not smooth so it complements the rest of the animation (and not smooth means easier!)
I like how so much atmosphere is created by using black and white and tilted camera angles. There is also a part near the end where images are projected onto other objects, very inspiring! There are some other interesting effects to try out also, I think on one part each frame of the stop motion has been inverted so it gives the effect of an X-ray!
