It's true I don't often feature videos or motion on Notpaper, but that's because I don't come across things that often that I feel fit with the blog. Usually when I find a video I like, it's because I found their 2D collages first! As is in this case, with the motion collages of Nathaniel Whitcomb. Click below for some more details about this video... and enjoy!
For the past several months I've been cutting up and digitally collaging together short films/music videos entirely out of old National Geographic magazines. For lack of a better term, I've been calling them "motion collages."
After scanning in my cut outs, I collage together scenes and then subtly inject them with life using AfterEffects. The results are slowly paced audio/visual stories that have been said to "make you feel like someone something slipped into your coffee."
Created for the Holy Spirits debut ep "The Afternoon's Blood," this motion collage was hand cut out, scanned & digitally assembled entirely from a pile of 40 year old magazines. I've made videos for every song on the ep so keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for the rest of the set.
