Lenore's Song by Yunyu: Made with 16,000+ Digital Photos!

Neatorama reader Yunyu sent this one in: her music video "Lenore's Song," a stop-motion movie made with over 16,000 digital photographs, where each frame is a photograph!

Apparently, the music video claimed some lives - seven machines (2 external hard drives, 1 Apple Powerbook G4, 1 Mac Desktop G5, and 2 Digital betacam transwer machines) kicked the bucket. Presumably, they couldn't process that many hi-res photos, or maybe it's something in the song ...

Just a volunteer here from the film crew. Camera was a Canon EOS 5D borrowed off a mate. Aside from the jittery aesthetics, the other reason was that it was cheapest way to make a clip with special effects, plus promo photos to spare. We couldn't even afford film. It's as indie as poor indie gets.

What makes this different from any other stop motion video on YouTube? Aren't they all shot with digital camera, of one type or another?

Also: Ditto what Jason E says, you can do the exact same effect much easier by shooting on digital video then randomly removing frames.
