Kraak & Smaak’s Flipbook Video

Kraack & Smaack

Just when you think everything that could possibly be done with old-school flipbooks has been done, along comes a refreshing example of the technique’s versatility. The new Kraak & Smack music video, “Squeeze Me”, is directed by Dutch filmmakers André Maat and Superelectric.

    I’m not sure which one came first but have you seen the new Presidents of the United States video? http://www.vimeo.com/751184
    I’d really hate to think of Weird Al as a thief.

    Whichever came first, it’s hard to get Second-Person movies to work as well as these are.

    There was a super-awesome flipbook film like this at the Ottawa festival last September… I forget the name of it. Is it by the same folks? It was really impressive.

    There’s something similar in Adjustement by Ian McKinnon (http://ianmackinnon.co.uk/adjustment).

    Lots of great flipbook things in this shortfilm, my eyes are still flickering.

    YES! Adjustment was exactly the one I was talking about. How impressive. Thanks!
