“Bad Apple!!” is a fantastic stop-motion animation video made from 6,566 still photos of printed bitmaps images. According to its creator, Nico Nico Douga, the video was made without using any photo-editing software.
Images were captured with a webcam, and the effects were achieved by changing the camera position and adjusting the focus, brightness, zoom, exposure and gain.
The original stills and music come from this video for the song “Bad Apple!!” (arranged by Masayoshi Minoshima, featuring vocals by nomico) from the Touhou Project game series.
