...totally unrelated to Japan....

When the process is as inspiring and beautiful as the end result, you just have to post something like this... and it's making me nostalgic for US street signs and street life! (Well, except for the homelessness part...)

Max Tyrie's Handmade Modest Mouse Video:

"Myself and a couple have friends have entered the above into the Modest Mouse video competition. Using green screen footage provided by the band we cut a simple music video. We then degraded the images and printed out each frame sequentially. (all 4133 of them) We then nailed each "shot" of 50-100 posters to various structures and posts. Then using a digital SLR camera with a long exposure we frame by frame shot each poster. Oh, and theres a little video projection (again, frame by frame on the SLR) just to mix it up. There is no compositing, no shortcuts, just lots of blood, sweat and tears, and a huge Kinkos bill!".... Max
