Who Knew the Internet Needed “Shake It Off” Rotoscoped?

What do you get when you combine a love for Taylor Swift and artistic talent? A complete re-rendering of the “Shake It Off” music video, all done in rotoscope animation. For those who don’t know, rotoscoping is an animation style where animators — frame by frame — trace over footage, generally for use in live-action or animated films. To make this video, Plasmatic Research Laboratory had 49 students tackle the music video, each taking 52 frames apiece, resulting in 2,767 frames of dedicated, imaginative animation.
