Journey Through a Melting Brain

There’s a reason that David Daniels, the inventor of STRATA-CUT animation, earned the title “Insanimator.”  One look at his “Journey Through a Melting Brain” compilation below will show you everything you need to know.  He creates animation in reverse by sculpting frames in enormous clay blocks, then films the block sliced away one thin frame at a time.  You can check out more of his work via our friends at Portland’s Bent Image Lab, a studio he co-founded.
