[SMS] Shine

I found this on the Fish Atlanta‘s website. Here’s what they say:

Take a look at David Crowder’s brand new single, “[SMS] Shine”!  This amazing video was created with a LiteBrite and 1 million pegs. Everything you see in the video actually happened – NO computer generated graphics or effects!  Even details such as the piano playing in the background and the monkeys beating a drum in perfect time was done free of digital affects and computer animation. It took 2,150 man hours, 1,200 LITE-BRITE images, 83 friends and 148 pizzas to complete the video.

Check it out for yourself:

    I’m always amazed by stop-motion pieces, but I can’t even imagine the amount of work that went into this. Inspiring video =)

    Wow! I cannot even imagine all the time and work involved in this. Almost like a mandala that is created and then destroyed.
