Architeq’s Into The Cosmos by Darren Robbie at Chopsy Animation

David Knight - 9th Dec 2010

A gobsmacking animation - on a subject dear to all us older folks - by Darren Robbie at Chopsy Animation in Bristol, which was conceived as a short film but has become a tie-in with DJ/producer Architeq's Into The Cosmos.

A gobsmacking animation - on a subject dear to all us older folks - by Darren Robbie at Chopsy Animation in Bristol, which was conceived as a short film but has become a tie-in with DJ/producer Architeq's Into The Cosmos. It's based on a simple premise: 'what happens to all the old vinyl people used to play'. According to this, its being lured out of attics, old shelves and rubbish bins by a Pied Piper-like 'collector' - and passing through walls, cars, even people on their way. And what's so impressive is how this was achieved almost completely in-camera, using a combination of stop-frame, pixilation, live-action &amp; time lapse animation. It's very good indeed - Architeq added the music &amp; sound effects after filming finished &amp; the first edit was completed. <strong><em>Chopsy Animation on making the short film/video Into The Cosmos</em></strong> "INTO THE COSMOS" is Chopsy Animation's (chopsyanimation.com) first foray into the world of music videos, a tie-in with music maker Architeq from Tirk Records (www.tirk.co.uk). Using a combination of stop-frame, pixilation, live-action &amp; time lapse animation, it was shot in a variety of locations around Bristol &amp; was created by shooting entirely in camera whenever possible (at other times multiple passes were combined). By shooting each frame within a specific timescale for the external shots, we see vinyl records interacting with the ever changing natural light &amp; weather (dry or wet, sunny or cloudy) -- if you look closely you can even see puddles drying out in a couple of shots. All the records you see were cut before shooting, with new centre labels stuck onto them to create the desired visual effect of them spinning &amp; bouncing through the ground, they were then animated on location using weighted rigs. Architeq added the music &amp; sound effects after filming finished &amp; the first edit was completed. Rigs were removed, different passes combined &amp; shadows cleaned up in AfterEffects. Motion capture on location was achieved by using Dragon software on a laptop, which was in turn powered by a portable caravan battery. Cameras used were the Canon Eos 5 &amp; 7.
