Making of RUVIVAL Stop Motion Videos

This post is also available in: Español (Spanish)

Stop Motion is a visual storytelling technique that has been present in film-making for over a century. In fact, it is the first ever animation technique. It creates an illusion of movement by playing a series of individual frames in a fast sequence. In Stop Motion, ideas are often conveyed by combining art, motion and metaphor.

This is why in RUVIVAL, we use the Stop Motion technique to explain complex topics in a simple and descriptive visual manner, where language is not in the foreground. The particular style of our videos is called cut-out animation. This technique utilises flat materials, such as paper and fabrics, producing a 2D animation as a result. We focus on using small-scale handmade scenes and we have learned a few things along the way about creating a makeshift Stop-Motion studio. All images used in RUVIVAL Stop-Motion videos are hand drawn by our collaborators, just as all sound effects are available in public domain. For clarity, the audio is recorded by a professional native speaker.

But don’t just take our word for it, see for yourself how RUVIVAL Stop Motion Videos are made!
