‘Plasticine Rhythm’, A Musical Stop Motion Animation

London-based animator Andy Martin created the stop motion short “Plasticine Rhythm” over the course of six months using the Twitter app Vine on the iPhone, generating animated visual loops layered on top of one another to help create a cohesive piece of music that serves as the soundtrack.

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 colour and the mini TVs containing the loops, so every element was intrinsically linked with the music.
