There’s something inherently magical about stop motion animation, transforming inanimate objects into something far greater than the sum of their parts.
In this short film Stems so-called because it was made in reverse, taking stems from a track of music before creating the characters to perform that sound, like a ragtag band of junkyard misfits, is a seriously time-consuming undertaking, 6 months to be exact. The process may be painstaking, but the result is a work of art.
Laboriously created by Bafta-winning director and animator Ainslee Harrison in collaboration with musician Poppy Ackroyd who delivered the score, Stems is a triumph in stop motion animation and a truly life-enhancing short filmic experience. One man’s trash and all that.
