Stop Motion Laser Burnt Toast For OK Go's Last Leaf Video.
The latest video for OK Go's "Last Leaf" is a lovely and sweet stop motion animated video featuring the illustrations of artist Geoff Mcfetridge on actual toast.
The charming video was made by burning toast with a laser and shooting still images of each piece of toast. It took 15 still shots for every second of video and 2,430 pieces of toast were used. And if you're wondering.... all 215 loaves of bread were past their sell-by date & rescued from certain disposal for the shoot.
Directed by OK Go, Nadeem Mazen and Ali Mohammad of Serious Business Design. Produced by Shirley Moyers, the piece was made in partnership with Samsung NX100 iFn, and Create Your World.
