Tissue Paper Stop Motion

This delightful short was created by animator Yuki Ariga for the Japanese paper manufacturer Nepia.

Every style of frame by frame animation is painstakingly time consuming, be it with a pencil or a mouse and keyboard. However, stop motion instills in me a sense of wonder that other types of animation simply do not. There is something so tangible, accessible, and surreal about stop motion. Seeing inanimate, physical objects come to life before your eyes is simply magical.
