This new music video for composer Ralf Hildenbeutel's track Disco was created from over 1,200 individually hand-painted frames. Directed by Boris Seewald, the clip uses an animation technique called rotoscoping to turn the real-life movements of dancers Althea Corlett and Simone Schmidt into a series of drawings and paintings to make each scene. Despite the wild variety of mediums and techniques used in the hundreds of sketches, the frame to frame continuity almost serves to enhance and accentuate the motions of the dancers.
Rotoscoping is a form of animation where live video is translated into hand-drawn animation stills with the help of a projector or transparencies. Some more notable examples from pop culture include several scenes from both of Disney’s Snow White and Peter Pan, or the 1984 music video for Ah Ha’s Take On Me.
Disco was animated by Boris, Mina, and Mihwa Seewald, and filmed by Georg Simbeni. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)

On the Boundaries of Darkness by Anton Semenov. Anton Semenov is a digital illustrator from Bratsk, Russia who creates extraordinary animated portraits and mind-bending dark themed characters and worlds. Anton Semenov is as mysterious as his work. Hiding under the nickname Gloom82 on DeviantArt, this young digital artist living in Bratsk, Russia, has indeed created a very dark universe. Semenov’s post apocalyptic cityscapes and intricate monsters bear the inheritance of H.R. Giger’s alien paintings and sculptures, Philip K. Dick’s disturbed science fiction and H.P. Lovecraft’s genetic horrors.
