A ‘Walking Dead’ LEGO Stop-Motion Animated Short Made Using a Canon Rebel T3

Wonderful little video made with a simple Canon Rebel T3/EOS 1100D by artist MonsieurCaron.

What happen when Daryl Dixon see some smoke in the forest ? Will he investigate it ? Is there any walkers over there ? This short LEGO brickfilm use the very rare Zombie Hunter Enthusiast minifigure made with genuine LEGO bricks by Citizen Brick as well as custom zombies head and a collection of more than 250 000 LEGO bricks. It’s not really a Walking Dead story, more of an homage to Norman Reedus character and the zombie genre.

MonsieurCaron shot over 3000 pictures, and spent a month to build, film, and edit the whole stuff. The result is awesome. There are 15 images per second! Congrats!

The Timefreezers – Bullet Time Shot Using 140 Canon Rebel T3 Cameras

The Pixelist‘s Simon Byrnes is the operator of a camera rig consisting of 140 Canon Rebel T3/EOS 1100D cameras. Usually he works for some UK dance show and captures bullet-time sequences of dancers. In his spare time he decided, just of fun, to make the video above, called The Timefreezers.

Do you think you need high megapixel cams for such jobs? Think again, the Rebel T3/EOS 1100D has a 12MP sensor. I like projects and ideas like this one, especially when inexpensive gear is used. Though, buying 140 Rebel T3s would probably break most peoples bank.

There are just a few sequences where you can spot the cameras, lined up along the stage.
