This is one of the most inventive, student animation projects I’ve seen. It is also possibly one of the most expensive, as 987 Polaroid shots are not going to come cheap.
The idea is somewhat similar to the flipbook animations most of us were so enthralled by as children. The project makes use of a series of Polaroid shots to create single frames with gradual variation; the pictures are slowly animated, creating the illusion of motion.
The creator, Jordan C. Greenhalgh, succeeds by using an archaic form of animation; the medium is part of his message. Even in a time dominated by CGI and 3D computer graphics, a green screen isn’t a necessity for the production of great animation.
