6 days for 45 seconds and over 360 frames – on top of the daily business. That means nights and a weekend full of paper and light. We were asked by Sony/ATV Music Publishing to create a short animated Holiday-/Christmas card. For this challenge we developed an abstract journey through a music concert by using the Strata Stencil animation. Handmade animation! Commissioned by Fragstein Berlin - fragstein-berlin.de (Concept, Design, Animation by Alexandra Fragstein, Melanie Spintig and Florian Stumpe) Special thanks to Pina Gertenbach (Hand model) and Christian Rose (Color grading). Music: Kasper Bjørke with Jacob Bellens - "Lose Yourself To Jenny" Read Less

ABOUT
 
The idea behind my approach was „stencil cut animation“ in which each and every frame of a well developed storyboard is a paper cut-out. These cut-outs are linearly arranged. We managed to built a special hanging system to arrange 15 different frames one after another for every picture and transposing it for every photography by one position. Thereby we evolved an illusion of a film proceeding into the depth consisting of hundreds of analog single images.
 
Concerning the content the film shows several details with regard to the main topic of Sony/ATV, namely music. Concert audiences, guitar players or a flight of microphones were combined with typical Christmas elements and ornaments.
