Gobsmacking animation – on a subject dear to all us older folks – by Darren Robbie at Chopsy Animation in Bristol, which was conceived as a short film but has become a tie-in with DJ/producer Architeq’s Into The Cosmos. Based on a simple premise: ‘what happens to all the old vinyl people used to play?’. According to this, its being lured out of attics, old shelves and rubbish bins by a Pied Piper-like ‘collector’ – and passing through walls, cars, even people on their way. And what’s so impressive is how this was achieved almost completely in-camera, using a combination of stop-frame, pixilation, live-action & time lapse animation.
