An Amazing Stop Motion Video of Cleverly Carved Pumpkins Dancing to Music Made by Pumpkins

Stop Motion Pumpkin Carving

Creative director Sean Ohlenkamp and friend Rob Popkin created “Oh My Gourd“, a wonderful stop motion video of seasonally appropriate, cleverly carved pumpkins dancing to a soundtrack of music made with pumpkins by Grayson Matthews.

Dozens upon dozens upon dozens of pumpkins were cut, gutted, rotated, scraped, poked, slapped, and banged to make this stop-motion animation and the music that bring it to life. It took a few years – pumpkins rot, schedules get busy – but we loved discovering the methods that worked and the many that didn’t.
