Tape Generations

Tape Generations from johan rijpma on Vimeo.

I worked on this project for about 6 months. I tried many different compositions and then made a selection. A single composition could take more than 12 hours to develop/breakdown.

(the spinning of the plate was done by hand, turnin the plate about 0,4 degree's every 30 seconds, this meant i was standing in the wind and the rain for hours watching the tape "grow" and watching the sun come up/go down)
I'm a huge fan of stop-action animation, but I'm not sure how I feel about this piece. It's very pretty, yes, and the sound-effect is nice and creepy, but I don't think he got to the point he was trying to make. It feels like the dream sequence of a larger film.
