It starts with the familiar warning: “”This video contains flashing images”. But the video for Warp artist Harmonic 313 (aka Mark Pritchard) by Sydney, Australia-based motion design and animation outfit Sixty40 isn’t your average Harding Test-challenging strobeathon.

This tale of an extra-terrestrial viral-type invasion through the host of serious bodypopping expert Andy Uprock, was shot stereoscopically – two identical cameras aligned to mimic two eyes. In other words, the method used to shoot 3D movies, and vids like Encyclopedia Pictura’s video for Bjork’s Wanderlust.

It’s not 3D in that sense, but it uses a flicking technique inspired by two-frame 3D photos. That creates a sense of depth, and makes for an intense, very kinetic experience.
