Creating something from nothing, especially something great, takes time. After spending ten years in the visual effects industry, I can appreciate the time, effort and dedication animation takes. It’s a lot like writing.
Every picture, like every page in a good novel, advances the story to its conclusion. Pictures that are out of place should be cut so the viewer is not left feeling confused.
When I watch this, I am reminded of the Pixar Toy Story zoetrope (the flickering is due to the strobe lights not being in sync with the video). This is different and unique, and the result is a brilliant little visual story that has a beginning, middle and end. This animation of a zoetrope in action comes from French animator and film director Alexandre Dubosc.
