It took 2 years to make this 2460 photo stop motion music video! + How they made it.

If you think claymation stop motion iPad 2 video and Blush iPad painted stop motion video are cool, check this out.

Video: In Your Arms – Kina Grannis

Music video for In Your Arms, by Kina Grannis. Made with Mac and supposedly:

22 months
1,357 hours
30 people
2 ladders
1 still camera
288,000 jelly beans

Video: Behind the Scenes, In Your Arms – Kina Grannis

The video is made on a Mac using Dragon Stop Motion (now DragonFrame v3.0). Each final frame was shot in camera, no special effects / CGI / green screen was involved.

How was it created? Sketches were turned into animation. Then each frame was projected to be recreated by jelly beans. But what about the singer? Although Kina was shot against a green screen, it was only as an overlay guide for the frame by frame stop motion work.

The video is amazing, but ObamaPacman doubts that it took 2 years to make this video. Why? Director Greg Jardin works for Radical Media, which seems to be a high end production company that also produces music videos for likes of Justin Bieber, Pink, Bon Jovi, and Kate Perry.

    Please please PLEASE, American people, stop using “Kiwi” in place of “Kiwifruit”, the well-known tasty green fruit. You just cause confusion and make yourselves look foolish. A kiwi is a small brown bird.

    FYI, it did take 22 months to complete the music video. Both Kina and Greg Jardin were occupied with other pursuits outside of this project so filming occurred after hours, usually 9 PM to 3 AM. Because of the odd hours, assistant availability was also sporadic so productivity was not always at 100%. In addition, shooting was interrupted by Kina’s tours in 2010 and 2011. I’m sure Kina and Greg would both have loved it if the entire process was completed more in the realm of 6 months, but alas, it was not!

    • Thanks Mama G. Interesting that such a production house would take a year to shoot a video, but yeah if the client is busy then it could proceed at a different schedule.
