Awesome Shugo Tokumaru Stop Motion Video

Something incredibly awesome for this week-end with this stunning stop-motion video created by japanese artist Shugo Tokumaru and called "Katachi". You probably know what stop-motion is as Tim Burton directed many films with this technique but if you don't, stop motion  "is an animation technique to make a physically manipulated object appear to move on its own. The object is moved in small increments between individually photographed frames, creating the illusion of movement when the series of frames is played as a continuous sequence". 

All the beauty here is that it's done with paper silhouettes, and that each movement  is of course perfectly in place with the music. Wonderful stop motion work, this one will be hard to beat!
