Stop-motion Music Video DELTA HEAVY – ‘Get By’ by Ian Robertson

I can only image the amount of work that went into making this stop-motion music video. A total of 11,008 photographs were taken for the film, and 3,184 photographs made the final cut. We all have seen Kina Grannis and her “In Your Arms” music video made with jelly beans, then Coldplay’s “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall“. If you enjoy seeing “food” being prepared you can watch THIS biscuit cake preparing itself, or these cooking videos by PES. This time, the guys from Delta Heavy just released their music video for the song ‘Get by’, which was shot by Ian Robertson.

Some specs:
80 Rubik’s Cubes were hired for the shoot.
10 hours to animate 18 frames of the Rubik’s Cube equaliser.
148 Subbuteo men hired for the shoot.
99 Red Balloons by Nena is the vinyl record in the opening sequence.
7 Hungry Hippos were harmed during the making of the film.
160 pick-up sticks are equalised.
1 John Hunt Little Champion Pie Machine was used as the record press.
4 hours to shoot the hungry hippos being minced.
12 photographs per second appear in the film.
6 hours to plan and shoot the camera dolly in on the minced Subbuteo.
32 days were spent animating.
