'Between You and Me'

stop-motion animation composed from over 2000 photographs taken with a still photo camera. The film won prestigious awards for its innovative approach to still photography. It won SeNef Mobile Grand Prix at Seoul Film Festival, Best Experimental Film at the Tiburon International Film Festival, Best Cinematography at the Gotham City International Film Festival, Best Short Film at the Vilnius Independent Film & Video Festival and in the Experimental Film category at Big Apple Film Festival. Written and Directed by Patryk Rebisz.

The technique utilized a photo camera's ability to record a rapid succession of images - to tell a story. Since the film is composed of single individual frames, it is by definition an animation!
