It's kind of interesting, but I recently ran into three papercraft/stop motion projects with the same theme just recently- Habitat Patch, Revolution and Paper City by Mauro Lovadina, Helen Friel and Maciel Janicki. All distinct in their own respects, but all centered around the themes of towns and cities.
Nearly a year in the making and shot in a continuous take, Revolution follows the cyclical journey of a single water droplet.
The streets are paved with paper. This delicate animation follows the charming rise and fold of a fragile metropolis. Captured by an unseen helicopter, the narrative unfolds through winding roads, erupting forests and emerging mountains. Paper City grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble, wrinkle and gently crease back into the ground.
