This stop-motion dance film features real people, and it’s brilliant
I’ve mentioned it before – I’ve always been enchanted with stop motion movies. If you also enjoy them, you’re gonna love “Golden Oldies” – a short stop motion film by Frame Order. First of all, they use real people for pixilation. Combined with dolls, lots of patience and an interesting story, they’ve created a video that will impress you, but also make you smile.
“Golden Oldies” features two guys trying to get the prettiest girl on the dance floor. It’s placed in a typical fifties diner, with the music and costumes that depict the era. There’s a fun twist each time the rock and roll music stops playing, but I don’t wanna spoil it for you before you watch it.
I found this short film not only amusing but also really impressive when it comes to the technique. And it impressed me even more when I saw the “making of” footage. Frame Order shared it on their YouTube channel, so you can check out how they pulled off some of the frames that seem the trickiest. There are a lot of props, posing and green screen. It shows not only how creative and clever solutions they have, but also how much fun they had while filming.
Finally, as a bonus, let me tell you that Frame Order also makes awesome short cartoons. You can check out their other work on their website, and you’ll find plenty more stuff to enjoy.
