"Operator is a stop motion animated short film about a man named Bob, attacked by a bio-mechanical parasite, fighting for his life and family against forces much greater than himself.... read more and website below the fold."

"I was inspired to make this film by a few things, cordyceps mushrooms which infect and control the minds of ants, causing them to climb up as high as possible so that when the mushroom finally bursts from the ants head the spores are spread as far as possible by the wind. Secondly, "parasitic ideas" - such as ideologies designed by cults or oppressive regimes explicitly to weaken and control the holders of such beliefs, and the callous mechanization of corporate bureaucracy. sprawling bureaucracies in super massive organizations can have so many moving parts and conflicting interests that no human maintains real control. Operator follows the plight of one man, Bob, fighting for his life and family against forces much greater than himself."

The New America

"The New America" is a short animation in which every frame was created by laser engraving its unique artwork onto a solid block of maple. Once complete, the entire sequence of +800 frames was then photographed and assembled into this motion piece.

This piece was funded by really kind friends and supporters via Kickstarter. After many unforeseen issues and delays, the entire process took about two years.

As seen in the video, each frame is unique. Aside from the design of each frame itself being distinct, small variances that naturally occur in the laser engraving process as well as the different wood grain of each frame naturally created subtle shifts of the position of the artwork. An effect that I was particularly interested in and that could naturally be achieved in digital assembly, but that I was much more excited about re-creating with real objects.

The music was carefully crafted by my amazing friends at World Gang - music.world-gang.com

The abstract storyline showcased in this piece is a concoction of a variety of ideas and can perhaps be described as a union between concepts and experiments born during the Situationist movement and real life events experienced during the last few years in American society. Particularly the duality between the economic downturn and the shift in values and beliefs of many citizens.

If you decide to purchase one of these frames, please note that I will randomly select one of them. Please, do not request a particular frame.

Lawn Chair 2

Uploaded by YouTuber frank howarth

Published on Jul 28, 2013

This film is the making of a lawn chair from milling the lumber to finishing the chair. The story is told with no dialogue through stop motion animation. The concept for the chair is a striped beach towel hanging over a chair. The film opens with this symbolism and then proceeds to tell the story of the wood being cut, planed, shaped and assembled into the lawn chair.

To see the first chair and a description go here:

Uploaded on Mar 3, 2010

The idea of the film is simple. How to visualize the warmth of natural gas? By the use of the stop motion technic, we see how warmth spreads through the house as knitted wool. A film of TBWA Brussels, directed by Olivier Babinet produced by Lovo Films. Don't forget to check out the making of how we did it!
