Post-It Animation

Came across this amazing motion animation done with Post-It notes alone. This project called Deadline is the work of Bang-​yao Liu, stu­dent at Savan­nah Col­lege of Art and Design. More than 6,000 Post-​It notes in all kinds of dif­fer­ent colors were used to pro­duce a life-​size pixel ani­ma­tion on the wall. The inspiration for this project?

Where my idea comes from is that every time when I am busy, I feel that I am not fighting with my works, I am fighting with those post-it notes and deadline.

For those of you really keen on knowing how this superb work was done, Bang-​yao Liu has posted a making of video too which explains just how much effort it took to achieve these results. The project took over 3 months of planning and was shot over 4 days.The patterns and graphics were originally created in Adobe Illustrator and then imported in Flash where the pre-animation was done. This was then simulated with Animatics to ensure interaction with live actor.

During filming the animatics were projected on to the wall to paste the Post-It’s at exact positions and then while shooting the image the projector was covered. This proces was repeated again and again and again till this super awesome video resulted!
