A Stop Motion Animation Created with Cut Out Sheets of Paper

The short film "The Me Bird" created by Brazilian design & motion graphics studio 18bis, is a free interpretation of the homonym poem by Pablo Neruda. The inspiration in the strata stencil technique helps conceptualize the repetition of layers as the past of our movements and actions. Via their website,"The frames depicted as jail and the past as a burden serve as the background for the story of a ballerina on a journey towards freedom. A diversified artistic experimentation recreates the tempest that connects bird and dancer.
