Darcy Prendergast and Seamus Spilsbury created this amazing animation for “Time To Go” by Wax Tailor and Aloe Blacc. It’s so well done that I was convinced parts of it were CG, but Darcy assured me over Twitter it’s all stop-motion. The crochetted creature’s little adventure was shot over the course of three and a half months (six days a week, 12-hour days). Watch below!
Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.
The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
