Animator Rachel Kwak painstakingly created the elaborate part flip-book short film, A World I Never Made, for her final project at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. The inventive piece combines an animated story based on English poet A.E. Housman‘s book of the same name and an actual copy of the book that houses the poem. Silhouettes of rabbits jump right off the page in seeming synchronicity to the song Eon Blue Apocalypse by Tool.
Her former Experimental Animation professor at Pratt Institute, Robert Lyons, explains:
…this film is a beautiful example of visual poetry. A variety of techniques are employed including; cut-outs, hand-drawn, stop motion and replacement animation.
