Oh My Gourd

Here's a delightful stop-motion animation in which the frames are carved pumpkins. Sean Ohlenkamp and Rob Popkin carved hundreds of pumpkins over several years (in their free time) to make this video. They made many sequences and discarded most of them, some because the idea didn't work, and some because the finished sequence wasn't great. What's left is a brightly colored pumpkin that dances as its carvings change.

The thumping music in the background? That's also made with pumpkins, in process they called "pumpkin orchestration" under the guidance of Igor Correia. You'll get to see what that looks like at the end of the video. -via Laughing Squid
