THIS is the incredible stop motion video an artist has created using more than a thousand photographs.

Callum Cutler’s project, Shapeshift, features images from Brighton and Hove, including stones along the shore, flowers and beach huts, as well as pictures from across London.

The Brighton-born artist's video has already seen almost 2,000 views on Instagram in less than 24 hours.

Callum said: “I’ve always been someone who has created stuff. Ever since I was 13, I would be making videos to be creative and I wanted to make something different that I’ve never done before.

“I wanted to shoot Brighton and London in ways that I hadn’t seen done before.

“When I first started editing, I would make little stop motion transitions in videos, so I wanted to bring that back but do it in a more professional way.”

Callum said he took more than 3,000 images for the project, which he has been working on for over six months, which he narrowed down to just over a thousand, with each picture making up one frame of the roughly one minute long video.

“It’s been a lot of work and a lot of hours have gone into it, but it’s a hobby so it’s not something that feels like work - it’s something I do out of enjoyment,” he said.

While a lot of time went into finding just the place or object to shoot, Callum said that many hours were ploughed into delicately lining up each image to the next to create the stop motion animation of the video.

By the end of the project, Callum said he had covered everywhere in Brighton and beyond for photos to feature.

He said: “The things I was shooting were very specific. You have to find objects which have square patterns to them, for example, and there’s only so many about that are good enough to capture.

“There was a lot of scouting about and riding around on my bike looking for stuff that I thought would fit.”

In Shapeshift, Callum hopes to capture some of the beauty in the everyday world that might be overlooked, with drone shots and regular camera shots capturing a view of both cities that had not been seen before.

Going forward, Callum will be investing his time and efforts into a new production role at London-based media start-up OCD Studios.
