Thinking about stock photos makes me yawn. Thinking about hundreds of them makes me fall in a coma-like sleep. But somehow AlmapBBDO – directed by Cisma and Marcos Kotlhar via Paranoid Brazil – has gathered 873 of these photos from Getty Images to create this spellbinding one minute video clip.
Cisma said, “Although it uses still images, we tried to make it dimensional with movement and by playing with perspective. All images are 100% from the Getty Images archive. The only thing we did was change the scale and rotation to build the stop-motion sequence. There’s so much in there that it’s a spot that should be watched frame by frame.”
Love, adventure, heartbreak, sickness and joy: it all passes by at fifteen stock photos per second!
