This video might start off looking like just another DIY project, but partway through it shows the fun and creativity that the author put into it.
Technically speaking, it’s nothing special. Youtuber Hampton Rutland explains how he’s finishing a construction project with wood he reclaimed from a derelict demolished house.
But once it starts (at around 2:10), you see that he’s decided to have some fun with the construction project, adding a bit of stop motion animation to not only the construction of the wood, but some little Superhero figurines who join in.
I like the fact that it shows how even if you’re doing something mundane and repetitive, it doesn’t mean you can’t add a bit of your own creativity to the process.
Even if it’s just for your own enjoyment.
