Life flashing by

A person’s life can often be shown in pictures covering their most important moments in life, but it off course leaves us with gaps between events.

The following stop-motion video, created by Olympus for the 50th anniversary of their PEN camera model, shows a complete story in pictures. But they took a more original approach here, by printing and developing almost 12 000 pictures and laying them out over each other all across the house, whilst using the surroundings as a set. The video was created by digital advertising agency DSG with the stop motion animation Flo and Pete at BigFish Produktion, Berlin. The song was written and performed by Johannes Stankowski and is called Down Below.

The inspiration for the video came from Mr Takeuchi’s “A Wolf loves Pork” which shows a similar use of developed pictures to create a stop-motion video.Both videos are amazing, but in my humble opinion, the atmosphere and the feeling in the video created by Olympus is breathtaking and amazes on so many levels. Creative and compassionate marketing. Check it out and enjoy!
