paper cutout animation



Finding cool and unique animation online is harder than you’d think. While YouTube and Vimeo have their share of animated content, most of it lacks imagination or an original voice to standout. Using paper cutouts, stop-motion and a water tank, filmmaker David King gives us a lean and mean film that’s mysterious and haunting. If its interesting at 1-minute, imagine what we’d get at 5-minutes!

Was searching through the deepest annals of my Hard Drive and came across a GIF of one of my first animations (circa 10 years ago).

Paper cut out stop motion using the old family SLR. I vividly remember spending a night on my knees carefully moving paper bits while pressing the shutter button before they all blew away.

FEATURING: Bruce Lee with Jackie Chan’s body
GUEST STARRING: Screen shake before it was cool (possibly due to my dog trying to hump my leg as I worked)


11 Paper Place is a love story about two 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper that magically transform into paper people as they are spit out of a malfunctioning printer into a recycling bin.

All done with paper cutout and foam core silhouettes. WOW


Here is my Experimental Animation final. It was only supposed to be about 30 seconds long, and ended up as this monstrosity of a project.

This is a project that has taught me I can finish a short film in a week.
