Stop motion is a very precise and tedious animated film making technique. It is also called Stop Frame Animation. The animation is captured in one f rame at a time where the objects are moved accordingly. The basic process involves taking a photo of the object, slightly moving it and taking another photograph. When one plays back the images consequently the objects appear to move.
Mother Teresa was a Roman Catholic nun. She devoted her life to millions of poor, destitute and downtrodden people.
She was a ray of hope to these people and in 1979 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for the work she had done. She
worked for charity and had a simple life beyond human needs. She needed had a calming effect and a strong
connection with humanity.
Using Mother Teresa as an inspiration of the Stop motion video, one is reminded of the strength, determination, love & hope, we all need to be reminded of in our world today.
This stop motion video named ‘From Dust to Dust’, is taken f rom the phrase ‘ ashes to ashes, dust to dust’. We must always remember to be humble and know that one day everything will come to an end... The thought that we are born f rom dust with nothing, and one day we will return to dust with nothing. The single rose disintegration as it is, beautifully captures this concept.
