An Inspiring Stop-Motion Video (Modest Mouse Fan Video)

modestmouse stop motion videoStop-motion photography ain’t easy. It requires patience, patience, planning, patience, and a whole lot of patience.

So we gotta hand it to Max Tyrie and his friends — to create their stop-motion rendition of Modest Mouse’s “Missed the Boat”, they took original footage from the group, printed it out frame-by-frame on 4,133 sheets of paper, then took photos of those sheets of paper with a digital camera. Finally, they assembled thousands of photos into a four-and-a-half minute stop-motion video.

Wow. It’s not that we can’t imagine the amount of effort that went into this, we can, it’s that it’s almost painful to think about. Still, watching the result brings a smile to our face. It’s magical.
