What if stop motion didn’t pause for a beat?
Many thanks go out to Arthur Richer (@ArRicher) who pointed the way to this unbelievable stop motion short entitled “Dream Music: Part 2.” A voyage into the depths of our subconscious, it lasts less than 8 minutes but needed 6 months of filming. This video utilizes a technique called “lyric-lapsing,” which produces a particular perception of contrast between the choppy background and the lips that continue to sing the song. Each sequence of 3 to 4 seconds necessitated at least 6 to 8 hours of work. Each scene was based on the lyrics of the song with the theme, “Time is the illusion within the dream of life.” You will recognize the use of a certain number of techniques previously experimented with by the creators of Dream Music in their previous video below. Don’t miss the beauty of the end credits, which by itself is 2 minutes long!
