What happens when you take 60 rocks from 15 different countries all around the world, capture 8,500 photographs of them and string them together into a three-minute stop motion video? The geology lesson you always wanted is what.
In this video, I obviously wanted to work with the beautiful textures of the rocks and tried to add something dynamic and kinetic effects to enhance the sequences. That’s why a large amount of shots are done mixing stop motion and motion design... I like to think about the idea that the casting of this video is made of ancient majestic characters from all around the world, it’s also a tribute to nature, with small bits of our planet dancing together during three minutes.
If you want to continue the lesson, you can see a full listing of all the the 60 rock types here.
