'Revolution' is a Stunning Stop-Motion Short

watch
Killer pop-up book animation follows the life cycle of a drop of water

Just when we thought the stop-motion craze had lost steam, this one "popped up" (sorry, had to) and put that idea to bed.

Director and fellow Portlander Jade Harris does the song proud with this analog stop motion animation. “The video consists of a little over 3000 photos and took about two months......read more

Yoriyos "The Pied Piper"

watch
Pop-up book style animated video tells a story of environmental renewal.

Judging from the lyrics of this song -- and the story of its beautifully conceived video -- indie-folker Yoriyos has the same values as his dad, Yusuf Islam (formerly known as Cat Stevens).
