A short video reveals the history and evolution of one of film's most iconic techniques: stop-motion.

Stop-motion, which has been used in cinema for over a century, involves moving objects into new positions between frames while stopping and restarting cameras, creating the illusion of movement.

Vugar Efendi's video reveals some highlights of stop-motion since 1900, including work by cinematic legend Ray Harryhausen, some of Aardman Animation's films, Tim Burton's Beetlejuice and The Nightmare before Christmas, and even Star Wars.

Elegant, otherworldly, and sensual are all words we might associate with perfume ads, which often try to convey an air of sophistication.

But the new ad for Kenzo World stands out, thanks to its quirky approach and expressive star.

The ad, directed by Spike Jonze, sees Margaret Qualley burst into dance, flinging herself around a beautiful hall with impressive exuberance ‒ and her face is a sight to behold.

Qualley said: ‘When we think about perfume campaigns, we think about a pretty girl with a bottle. This clip is exactly the opposite. It's very multi-faceted and different; it takes the spectator by surprise.’
