Taking Instagram to an Entirely New Level with Stop-Motion Video

June 20, 2013

Flip books and stop-motion videos have always really amazed me. It's a tedious process that takes a lot of patience and individual pieces (photos, drawings, props, etc) to come up with an overall creative masterpiece. Twitter's video sharing app Vine has inspired stop-motion videomakers over the past few months as we've seen an accumulation of six-second clips featuring creative animation and stop-motion videos.

Rumors about Instagram joining the world of video sharing applications have been circling around today's Facebook event, but some people are too impatient to hear for sure, and have taken matters into their own hands. An Instagram account by the name of Friends in Faux created a stop-motion video from 1,556 Instagram photos.

Overall, the video took about three weeks to produce.
