Paper to Plants: a stop-motion paper film for Tinybop

This beautiful stop-motion paper forest was made by Kelli Anderson and Daniel Dunnam for Plants, a new app by our friends at Tinybop. Inspired by the app’s original illustrations by Marie Caudry, the intricacy of the all-paper diorama is stunning: 400 tiny leaves, 500 blades of grass, 25 squirrels, and a total of 6,000 photos help to put everything together.

In the archives, more amazing storytelling with paper: Østersøen (Ödland, Sankta Lucia), The Animated Life of A.R. Wallace, and Whale Fall (After Life of a Whale).
