Milan-based Virgilio Villoresi uses the pre-cinema technique, ombro cinema, to animate the drawings made by Virginia Mori. Everything was filmed in live-action, no post production effects were employed. Make sure to check out the rest of Virgilio’s charming portfolio.

Nice! I’ve been experimenting with this technique a bit too – we made this Christmas card at Beakus a couple of years ago Great to see someone apply it to a narrative.
