Vincent Pianina and Lorenzo Papace win stop-motion with the extraordinary Østersøen

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Well this is fairly major news, stop-motion may be over after Vincent Pianina and Lorenzo Papac (aka Le Petite Chomalade) released this mindbogglingly brilliant video for Odland’s single Østersøen. From a seafaring ship to the solar system, a run-away-train-rollercoaster-type-thing to a bed-bound chanteuse, the attention to detail is beyond belief, with the ocean liner’s pistons and the grain of wooden furniture all rendered to a ridiculous level of perfection. But as much as we can immerse ourselves in such terrific tiny touches, the overall effect is brilliant too and it hangs together with to create something more even than the sum of its marvellous parts. If you watch one thing today, make it this (you can also get some great making-of shots over on the guys’ site).
