This is just amazing! I found this blog post on http://mashable.com/ and I must admit, that I just copy pasted the text. All credit to Mashable for the wording and links. This project is just so mindblowing! See for yourself!

Just when we had almost given up hope on Nokia, along comes “Gulp,” a promotional stop-motion animation that broke a world record as the largest ever created.

The video showcases the Nokia N8 smartphone‘s 12-megapixel camera, using its Carl Zeiss lens to great effect. Shooting this clever video with three of the smartphones mounted atop a 118-foot-high crane, the Sumo Science team at Aardman Animations (some of whom also work on the Wallace and Gromit animated series) have succeeded in putting together a true work of art.

It’s been confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records that the 11,000 square foot area used in the video makes this the world’s largest stop-motion animation.

Want to see how it was done? Here’s the “making of” video:

We got this great little video from Germany, trying to illustrate how the world would look like, if we had no artisans and craftsmen! I think the production is well made and the idea is good! It was uploaded in Jan. 2011, and so far it has 255 hits on youtube. It looks like the production is made for a TV/cinema campaign and not on a viral budget. However it is an interesting way to illustrate and inspire young people to apply for that specific type of education. Check it out, and let us know what you think about it!

Johannes and Søren from kadaver have been working the last two months in Shanghai for the Nordic Council of Minsters on a project called The Creative North. The assignment was to show how Nordic countries are using creativity and user driven innovation when developing welfare products, services and/or technologies. This should be shown in a renovated old ware house in shanghai called The Nordic Light House. Through a long time of research, different Nordic companies and student projects was chosen to participate. The exhibitors should represent their process from discovering the “need” to representing the product. The exhibition we created was based on huge cones which was back lit. (previously we wrote about creating the prototype) Having the back lit cones created a great feeling next to the cold walls in the building and shaped a landscape of small glowing light houses. As you can see on the picture here, compared with the design layout posted earlier, we really managed to create the aesthetic visual experience of walking into the room. Now when it´s all done and we are back in Copenhagen we think back on a beautiful exhibition which gave inspiration and insight on the Nordic welfare model. See more about the project here: www.thecreativenorth.com

I just stumbled upon a great example of what you can achieve if you decide to involve our target group. In general this concept is seen a lot in the business world, but this example is from the music world. This might even be what will help the music industry through it’s crisis – just a thought… Anyway Danish band Kashmir decided to involve their fans in the creation of their new music video by encouraging them shot a video containing their logo – they should then send the file to Kashmir who would then in turn pick the best contributions for their new video. Smart… It turned out that more than 200 videos was received. Thus creating a music video for the fans by the fans. That is one hell of a way of nursing fans and cutting costs in production.

I have attached a link to an interview posted on Politiken (it’s in danish): Press the image below to access the interview

I think the result speaks for itself. And I can only imagine the feeling of actually contributing to music video of ones favorite band. Enjoy it:

In general it seems that Kashmir are focusing on making their website a gathering point for all fans and interested people. Check it out – I think they might be on to something. kashmir.nu

They have made prints on semi transparent plastic with light in the background. A sort of exhibition material and form we have been looking at, for the Exhibition in Shanghai that we are developing for KreaNord and Norden. The project is moving forward and we are closing in on partners for our Expo adventure.

This blog has been in the air for quite some time and nothing has happened – for that, sorry… We, Kadaver hereby promise that from this point on this blog will be filled with inspiration and thoughts from us the four members of Kadaver – Søren, Anders, Johannes and Jacob.

We will take turn in writing on this page to give you an insight in what happens in the heads of the four partners of Kadaver.  Through our work we are often inspired by the works of others. That inspiration we wish to share with you, the visitor of this page. So that will be the foundation of of this page, inspiration. Both in terms of what moves us on an individual level but first and foremost what moves Kadaver. This will be a way of keeping track of us for those of you that are not able to stop by the office on Solitudevej on Nørrebro.
