Web’s top gem collector Urlesque has spotted this new kick-ass video from a London based We Have Band. Now, I’m a big fan of stop-motion films, but this is something of an intrinsic value, as it’s made from 4,816 individual stills. Created for the song “You Came Out” by some of the bands own members, the 3 minute animation goes well beyond anything I’ve seen, and truly fantabulous.

The band describes the process of making the video as painstaking, as everyone had to be hand-painted and shot over two days with mouth and lyric syncing to care about.

An award winning social anthropologists  and creative animators at London Squared production has recently made this intriguing piece of stop-motion animation featuring real interview with sub-ethnic New Yorkers  discussing their lives as minority citizens of the worlds biggest cosmopoilitan city. I mean, what’s better way to describe NY other than asking its citizens?

I don’t know how 3D videos are possible, especially if you’re watching it on youtube.  But some experi-mentalists have come up with ways to bring in a proper 3D cinematic experience on your laptop screen! which means you can now watch weird and wonderful video footage of people showing their extraordinarily boring experiments in 3D. Alas, I could only wish  Chocolate Rain was in 3D.

Anyway, here are some rich pickings of 3D vids, if you don’t have funky red and blue glasses then bigwazo shows you how to make a pair.

And this guy tells exactly how you do it…

Someone with little crafty fingers has found a genious way to reuse cassettes for art purposes. Unlike me, who used to make hair extensions out of old cassette tapes, a budding artist Iri5 has created something much more meaningful out of them cobalt tapes, a portrait of Jimi Hendrix!

Earlier this week, I got accidentally introduced to Do the Green Thing, a creative movement with an underlining purpose to foster change in people’s perception towards the issue of excessive consumption in the face of global warming.

Founded by a group of friends who worked in creative industry in 2005, the aim of the project is to change the ways in which people foresee the issue and call for creative communities and individuals to promote wider behavioural change through art, music, poetry, the internet, photography, video, collage, mail-art and all else.

No matter what the governments and the media say about global warming, we’re still consuming, wasting and generally trashing our environment, but with a bit of creative spirit we can at least start making a shift in our stinking old attitude and carve new ways to live whilst still manage to have lots of fun in the process. Honestly, how bloody hard can it be?!

Take below video as an example, in which a talented illustrator Guillaume Cornet demonstrates All-Consuming themed sketches using up every last bit of a pencil on every last bit of a page.
