Deadline: Post-It Stop Motion

The chappie who made this Post-It Note-fuelled stop motion frenzy needs to be crowned the Undisputed King of Procrastination, like now! Instead of focusing on his studies at Savannah College of Art and Design, he decided to spend every waking moment for what we estimate to be a VERY long time, sticking and unsticking Post-it Notes to his wall, with an enviable dedication to his ultimate vision: a 2-minute stop motion animation called DEADLINE. Then he did something very clever. He decided to present his procrastination project as his senior project, thus assuaging both his workload and his boredom. Genius!

While a heated Youtube-comment-battle rages on as to the presence of digital manipulation (or lack thereof), creator Bang-yao Liu is racking up the Youtube hits at a rate of knots. He might even get a job in the withering creative industry once he graduates. Go Bang-yao!

P.s. kids you can stop arguing now, check the making of.

This is to remind you all to subscribe to our most beloved Vlog Hero Jerry Zucker. Last year Jerry and his brother Orrin won the first web Emmy – read more in this PREVIOUS POSTING.

This is Plane Insane, Jerry’s nightmare coming true. Buckle up, fasten your seatbelts – it’s gonna be a bumpy ride! Jerry wrote about this trip on his blog as well:

“In March, I flew from Fort Lauderdale to Providence with three stops in between. (Hey, it was the cheapest flight I could find!) The last leg of the trip reminded me very much of Nightmare at 20.000 Feet. I was half-expecting to see a gremlin on the wing of the plane.” READ MORE.

Brilliantly made.
