From filmmaker Virgilio Villoresi, Una Giornata Perfetta (A Perfect Day), a stop-motion and rotoscope-driven music video for Italian singer/songwriter Vinicio Capossela.

A flip book video by paper engineer, TEDx speaker, and artist Matt Shlian, who also makes paper sculptures and videos of his intricate flip books and small paper installations. A few favorites are here, here and (don’t miss this one) here.
Flipbooks (and making them) are little bits of magic.
