Stop-motion videos are always a good time, even if it’s just a stick figure dancing in a flip book. So imagine how fun a stop-motion video made with velcro (yes, velcro) is. It’s a freaking mind trip.
The video called ‘Freckle’, which was directed by Mike Cantor, uses 19,000 velcro dots to act as pixels to create shapes. The technique to pull off this video is just like old fashioned stop motion with some fancy tricks, “thousands of colourful velcro dots are arrayed like pixels onto a grid, photographed, and then superimposed one frame at a time onto live-action video.”
