Inspiration: Hélène Ducrocq (FRA) - Elle Demeure

(image source: KaAM)
Hélène Ducrocq is an animation director from France and part of a multimedia collective called KaAM. She is also an illustrator and artist in her own right has a gorgeous portfolio over here!

I was lucky enough to be given permission by Hélène to show their latest creation Elle Demeure which is a stop motion animation made from paper using a technique called Stratastencil.  They have a great website which shows some stills from the film, some process images, serveral films showing the making of the stop motion animation and of course the actual animation!

I have included a few images and one of the making of video's just to give you an idea of the techniques used and what was involved but please do go watch the actual animation here.

Also here is a link to an interview Hélène did with where she explains her inspiration, techniques and education.

Thanks Hélène for sharing!

p.s: I have to mention I saw Hélène's work over at a beautiful blog called Upon a Fold about paper artists.
