The video may be called “Guy Walks Across America,” but it seems he didn’t literally cover every step, but what the hell: it’s still a great piece of creative cinematography, and nicely shows off what the current generation of Canon dSLRs are capable of.
The stop motion movie was created by Peter Cole, produced by Blake Heal and directed by Sam Griffith, and is made from over 2,700 individual shots all taken on a Canon 5D Mark II and a 24-70 f/2.8 lens.
The production was sponsored by Levis Jeans who seem to have resisted the temptation to turn it into one big advert.
Here’s some extra ‘behind the scenes’ footage showing how it was done and here’s a map showing the locations visited.
