katy davis: love and loss animation

Katy Davis’  stop-motion animation about love and loss has been viewed on You Tube more than 350,000 times since she posted it three weeks ago.  The haunting animated music video is touching people all over the world – take four minutes out of your busy day to watch it and see why.

The pop up book (which I made myself) along with the girl at the end, and the dragon, are all filmed with stop motion photography. I then drew the characters on paper and coloured them in Photoshop – there’s 1,651 drawings just of the characters ouch!

Can you appreciate for a moment, the work that it took to create this piece?  Remarkable.  Ms. Davis is 25 years old.

  1. Sweet story, beautiful art, phenomenal work!
    Yes, I do appreciate the what went into that. I taught my kids how to do stop-motion animation (on a small scale) and they took it from there –with their clay (polymer and plasticene), Legos, toys, food, whatever they thought of. They had more patience than I did. haha!

    But 1651 drawings??? And 4 minutes. That would = many, many hours to give us this piece. I appreciate it very much!
