Birdmonster – The Iditarod video

“The Iditarod” was made using a technique called SLAM (SLide, Animation, Movies) coined by its developer – Greg Crane. Not too different from your standard stop-motion animation, SLAM takes the aesthetics to a new arty level. 95% of the video was created using digital still photos from a professional/high-end camera. Approximately 1800 shots were painstakingly and meticulously pasted together to establish that “motion”.
