How to Make a Baby?  Cassidy Curtis and Raquel Coelho using a DSLR camera over the course of 9 months took a montage of photos to create this darling video of how to make a baby.

Take two people, add a little hot air, and boom! It’s that simple. Photographed over a period of nine months in our home in San Francisco.

We made this video using a technique called “pixilation”, which is a fancy term for stop-motion animation done with real people instead of puppets. We shot it, frame by frame, with Raquel’s Canon DSLR over a period of nine months. Those of you who stopped by our house might have noticed some mysterious tape marks on the floor in the living room. Those were for the camera tripod and our feet.

Animating over such a long period of time, using an increasingly pregnant woman as one of your puppets, means basically throwing out everything you might normally do in an animated film. For example, early on, we had this idea that we should wear the same clothes every time, for continuity’s sake. But as Raquel’s pregnancy developed, we soon discovered that the extra effort required to change in and out of our uniforms was going to interfere with the goal of shooting as many frames as possible, and might even prevent us from finishing the project at all. We dialed down the perfectionism, and in the process ended up having a lot more fun with it. Read full: otherthings.com/howtobaby

Wondering if I could skip the sex talk and just tell my daughter that this is how baby’s are made? Maybe not, that would be too easy.
