Craft Making and Digital Transformation

Meet Morph.

Morph is a claymation television show which started in the 1980’s and in 2014 a brand new series of the show began airing on a YouTube Channel.

During the creation of claymation each object or character is sculpted, usually around a wire skeleton called an armature, and then arranged on the set, where it is photographed once before being slightly moved by hand to prepare it for the next shot, and so on until the animator has achieved the desired amount of film.

This show is an excellent example of the effort and time that goes into making these kind of stop-motion videos and shows just how craft can transform into digital.
