Stop Motion aus geschnitzten Kürbissen

Richtige Fleißarbeit, die man bei Ohkamp hier hingelegt hat. Rein rechnerisch bräuchte man für dieses Filmchen hier bei 12 Frames per Second um die 720 geschnitzten Kürbisse. Nun wurden einige hierbei mehrfach verwendet, macht aber immer noch einen Haufen Arbeit.

Dozens upon dozens upon dozens of pumpkins were cut, gutted, rotated, scraped, poked, slapped, and banged to make this stop-motion animation and the music that bring it to life. It took a few years – pumpkins rot, schedules get busy – but we loved discovering the methods that worked and the many that didn’t.

Many pumpkins were photographed twice. First as a nicely lit, carving-free plate. Then again after carving our designs and removing the top or back so we could insert a light. The two were then composited together to remove the lighting equipment. We re-used pumpkins where we could (fronts and backs and sometimes sides) but that wasn’t always possible.

We often projected images onto the pumpkins to improve consistency between frames,, but due to each pumpkin’s unique curves, it often took just putting it in front of the camera to check alignment.

Wenn ein 650 Kilo schwerer Kürbis auf ein Auto fällt

Bleibt von beiden nicht viel übrig.

A group of businesses in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada partnered with the insurance fraternity Honourable Order of the Blue Goose International to raise a 1,300 pound pumpkin up to enormous heights and then drop it straight down onto a Nissan Maxima on a beautiful fall day on the grounds of the Black Fox Farm and Distillery. The resulting smash was not only incredibly satisfying, but it raised a over $9,000 for the Saskatoon Firefighters Pediatric Fund, which helps out children who are ill.

Vom Spross bis zum 550 Kilo schweren Kürbis, timelapsed

So ein Kürbis braucht ein paar Tage. Darauf, dass der em Ende so ein Riesenexemplar wird, gibt es wohl kaum eine Garantie. Ihm beim Wachsen zuzusehen hat irgendwie etwas beruhigendes.

This is a time lapse of a 1223 pound giant pumpkin from seed to scale. It was grown from a seed out of the 2009 pound world record pumpkin grown by Ron Wallace in Rhode Island.
