Making of “Salvation” – Stop Motion Objet d’art

Join Blinkink director Noah Harris and veteran stop frame animator Andy Biddle as they turn seemingly random flea market finds into a series of playful and charming films for record label Village Green.

Animated entirely in camera with post and VFX by Nineteen Twenty in London, the series of eight films premiered as part of Channel 4’s Random Acts and “tell the story of evolution through the detritus of mankind. The birth of a planet in ELEMENT, the growth of the human race in SENTIENCE, and its descent towards the inevitable in OBLIVION.”

Watch the montage of the finished films below, and if you like this work, you’re gonna love Noah Harris’ 2014 video for Julio Bashmore called “Peppermint.”
