Ten Thousand Pictures of You

While traveling through Barcelona last year, some friends and I stumbled across a “funny shorts night” in a small bar. One of the films playing that evening left me in awe.

“Ten Thousand Pictures of You”, written by UK actor and director Robin King, is a three minute long movie that was shot entirely using stop motion photography to capture live actors (a process called pixilation). Robin explained the process behind making the video:

The whole film took about a year: roughly three months each for development, prep, shoot and post – although due to the nature of the film, part of the post bled into the shoot.


I used a Canon Eos 350D Digital SLR to shoot, and took roughly 26,000 photos overall.
