Journey Through A Melting Brain

“Strata-cut animation is most commonly a form of clay animation in which a long bread-like “loaf” of clay, internally packed with varying imagery, is sliced into thin sheets, with the animation camera taking a frame of the end of the loaf for each cut, eventually revealing the movement of the internal images within.”

In the mid-90’s David Daniels revived and refined the stratacut animation technique that was originally pioneered in the 1920s by German animator Oskar Fischinger. The attached video is a montage of some of Daniels’ best sequences – prepare yourselves to bask in the weirdness. Enjoy!
