Papercraft V8

I’ll never really understand the people that can dedicate hours, and even days of their life to doing something as seemingly useless and mundane as building a paper model of something else, but when that paper model is a WORKING model of a V8 engine that weighs more than six and a half pounds, then I guess I can cut them some slack; since it’s actually pretty damn cool:

…It’s Movie Monday: The Seed?

The Seed

Johnny Kelly’s ‘The Seed’ uses a combination of stop motion, papercraft and 2D animation to create a short that shows the fantastic journey a seed goes through from birth to death to birth again.

You can watch the movie HERE, but also be sure to check out the making of video below, as well as the Flickr Photo Set of Johnny’s work.
