Amazing Old School Rotoscope Video!

Reading Time: 1 minute

Wesley Stace

I know a lot of geek dads are going to enjoy this one — an artist (and writer) I enjoy, Stefan Bucher, is probably best known for his 100 Days of Monsters, but he’s recently put his talents to a music video for Wesley Stace. (It took Bucher to remind me where I’d heard Stace before — the High Fidelity soundtrack as John Wesley Harding.) Bucher has not only created one seriously eye-catching video but he’s also fully documented the details for how he did it. I love the video and song, but honestly… I love the How-This-Came-About article even better.

Take a look at the video below… and then read Bucher’s writeup on the 12-pound stack of paper (tracing paper, actually!) that made up the 3.5 month sketching process. Feel his pain as he discovers the limitations in the scanning process and then explains the software solutions. And smile with Bucher as he gets the thumbs up from Stace upon viewing the final result.
