Fiat Lux: A Light Painting Adventure

A skeleton that reminds us of a neon Indiana Jones collects artifacts as if he were collecting bonus items in a video game. It's pretty cool as a wordless short story, but the way this stop-motion sequence was made is the coolest part of it. It's a project from Darren Pearson, also known as Darius Twin. He took a long-exposure photo while waving a light through the air to draw the skeleton. That's one frame. Then he did it 686 times to produce all eleven scenes of the animation. (via reddit)

Wow. I found a video where he shows how to do it:

Yes, that might be how to draw one skeleton, but making the whole video of a skeleton adventure looks like quite a bit of work. Impressive.
