Stop motion video captures the beauty of Brighton and London
This is the incredible stop motion video that an artist created from more than a thousand photographs.
Callum Cutler’s project Shapeshift features images of Brighton and Hove, including stones along the shore, flowers and beach huts, as well as footage from all over London.
The Brighton-born artist’s video has already garnered nearly 2,000 views on Instagram in less than 24 hours.
Callum said: “I have always been someone who created things. Since I was 13, I was making videos to be creative and wanted to do something different than I had ever done before.
“I wanted to film Brighton and London in a way I had never seen before.
“When I first started editing I was doing little stop motion transitions in videos, so I wanted to bring that back but do it more professionally. ”
Callum said he took over 3,000 frames for the project, which he’s been working on for more than six months, which he reduced to just over a thousand, with each frame making up one frame of the video of about one. minute.
“It’s been a lot of work and a lot of hours put into it, but it’s a hobby, so it’s not something that looks like work – it’s something I do for fun. “, did he declare.
While a lot of time was spent finding the location or object to be filmed, Callum said many hours went into the delicate alignment of each frame over the next to create the animation in stop motion of the video.
At the end of the project, Callum said he had covered all over Brighton and beyond for photos to be featured.
He said: “The things I was shooting were very specific. You have to find items that have square patterns, for example, and there are only a limited number that are good enough to capture.
“There was a lot of scouting and traveling on my bike looking for things that would suit me. ”
In Shapeshift, Callum hopes to capture some of the beauty of the everyday world that might be overlooked, with drone shots and regular shots capturing a view of the two cities that has never been seen before.
Going forward, Callum will invest his time and effort in a new production role at London-based media start-up OCD Studios.
