If there’s one good thing in this whole coronavirus situation, then it’s the number of fantastic ideas and projects people have come up with in isolation. Swiss photographer Nicola Tröhler is one of these people and he has made animations like you probably haven’t seen before. They tell totally unexpected stories, and I’m sure they won’t fail to make you laugh.
Each of us spend our time in isolation differently, and Nicola is one of the people who feel like learning something new. He has more free time during this COVID-19 crisis and uses it to get a grip on still image animation. “Because I’m not able to shoot new content, I use the massive public domain libraries of Switzerland and the US to create these small stories,” Nicola writes. And I think he does a marvelous job, considering how quirky and fun his ideas are.
Check out more animations below, and make sure to visit Nicola’s website and Instagram for more of his work. I’m sure they’ll make your day just like they did mine! And if you’d like to play with public domain images, here is a list of libraries that you can browse.
