Whitehouse Post Cuts Stop-Mo “Rebel’

Short film for DETAILS relates the stop-motion story of Gotham with a cast of paper cut-outs stomping their way through intricate miniature sets.

Editor Kate Owen of Whitehouse Post brings her expertise to a fashion film for DETAILS that takes viewers on a stop-motion tour through New York’s underworld.

In the short “Rebel,” a cast of paper cut-outs stomp their way through intricate miniature sets created by director Lacey. To achieve the unique look of the film, models were filmed with a high speed strobe to capture their movement in a series of stills. From there Lacey and her team painstakingly cut out over 500 small paper models and filmed them in diorama sets. Working only with footage shot in camera, Owen blurred the line between editor and animator, seamlessly arranging the still pieces into a series of electric scenes set to a beat box soundtrack.
