I'm Only Barbie

I heard the Christina Perri "Only Human" song on the radio. That inspired me to look up the video. I really liked the brief effect they toss in now and again:

Not Only Human

Would it be possible to pull off a similar look in a short period of time, with zero resources, and no fancy programs? Let's find out.

In a word: Yes.

Using a Barbie, a camera, a light, and some electrical tape, I got the shots I needed. Then I cut everything together in Sony Vegas Studio (not Pro) and did the effect work in Gimp (which is free and not a crazy 3D effects program like Blender).

Only Barbie

If something inspires you, try to do it yourself with the tools you have.
