Stop-Motion Video: a book trailer

We’re so excited to share this project with you today. It’s pretty different from our usual work, but we think you’re going to enjoy it!

Before you see it, here is a little explanation:

This is a book trailer for a brand new book, being released in January. You can read more about it at The author, Lacy Clark Ellman, of, is a good friend and collaborator (she’s done some design work for this site, among other things) . When she asked for our help with this trailer, we got pretty excited. Dan began story-boarding, doing complicated math, and dreaming up the stop-motion masterpiece you’ll get to see soon.

About the stop-motion math:

The video you’re about to see is literally hundreds of pictures, glued together to make a video. It’s called stop-motion. Some precise calculations were necessary to make sure we actually took enough pictures to make a video. When I say “complicated math”, I’m referring to multiplication and division, which is lots more math than I normally like to include in a day.

So, without further ado, enjoy the video.

And, be sure to check out A Sacred Journey and the Pilgrim Principles book.
