"The Seed" Stop Motion Papercraft

With funding from Adobe and a lot of time and patience, here's a sublime short film from artist Johnny Kelly called "The Seed". It uses a mix of stop motion papercrafts and 2D drawn animation.
A two-minute animated voyage through nature's life cycle, following the trials and tribulations of a humble apple seed.

The papercrafts were made by Elin Svensson.


  1. I love how the music fades when the seed is underwater - that takes a lot of thought and planning.

  2. It is pretty cool, i wonder how long it took to make this vid?
