Artists Create Stop-Motion Instagramination Using Over 1,600 Stills

Instagram Videos are a big hit, but it doesn’t stand up to the artistry of this stop-motion video, dubbed Instagramination, by the duo at FriendsInFaux. The animation uses key user experience features of the photo app like swiping, filters, and even tilting to influence the story about a character’s wearisome trip to the beach.

If you like Instagram and videos but don’t have a few weeks to dedicate yourself to making a stop motion video, you can always create one with Instagram’s new video feature. If you are curious about how FriendsInFaux made their animation, watch their behind the scene documentary on the whole process using real cameras. It’s quite laudable.
