Freelance London animation director Andy Martin reveals the fine art of creating stop motion loops via his Vine-based Plasticine Rhythm project, “I have always been interested in the way visuals can effect sound and how visual loops can be brought together to create a piece of music.
“This is how I produced Plasticine Rhythm; allowing each stop motion loop, made using Vine, to dictate a sound and combining these sound loops on screen to build a compatible interplay of rhythm and melody. Once this was established I then played with all the elements, including the background color and the mini-TVs containing the loops, so every element was intrinsically linked with the music.”
