miniature melbourne

The boys have been having some fun playing with iStopMotion - an animation package for the iPad. They have also been interested in watching some of the information/training videos created by the awesome brothers on Animation Chefs. Hence, there have been a few animated videos being viewed around our house of late. 
I was struck by this time-lapse video created by Nathan Kaso. The title is Miniature Melbourne. Of course, I have a soft-spot for anything from my home town Melbourne. This video, with its vignette blurred focus effect, bright colors and stop-motion look to people and moving objects, gives a surreal look - not unlike a classic stop-motion using miniature cars and figurines. Apparently this is achieved with a miniature or 'tilt-frame' effect applied during the editing process.
