Taylor Swift's energetic, fan-centric "Shake It Off" video was already hella cool, being viewed over 809 million times so far (!!!). But a class of animation students just reimagined the vid in an incredibly cool way.
In what I would call a ~dream assignment~, 49 "Animation 1" students at the University of Newcastle were each given 52 frames (about 3 seconds each) of Swift's video to rotoscope — an animation technique where you trace over footage to draw and animate.
In total, they produced 2,767 frames of hand-drawn rotoscoped footage to recreate the entire video, which apparently took about a month to complete.
And their hard work and patience paid off, because the result is pretty much incredible.
