Palpable, playful and physical are words I would use to describe the medium of stop motion animation. Aiming to engage this medium in an unconventional way, I looked to my favorite filmmakers and their work. I was particularly drawn to surrealist films, and became curious of the process behind making one. In order to investigate this operation, I focused on melting and vibration: two highly physical and practical processes that I felt could be manipulated through the power of stop motion. This piece documents my extended experimentation with the physical capabilities of stop motion animation. Please enjoy my music video for Deerhunter’s, Revival.
