in the limelight

oren lavie

i am completely in love with this video. it is a stop motion movie, meaning still photographs stitched together to make a moving picture. it is a lot of work, considering that a 3.5  minute video could be up to 5000 images or so. i am attracted to the jagged feel that a stop motion picture has vs. regular video. oren lavie is a songwriter and director originally from tel aviv, israel. on his myspace page, he describes himself as someone who likes "to create dreamy visuals from realistic elements, [and] he enjoys squeezing big worlds into small places". this is a really interesting conceptual vision and it makes so much sense, considering that he showed an trulu emotional story without ever moving the camera away from the bed.
