With vintage toys and mesmerising kaleidoscopic effects, Jack Chute's excellent video for drum and bass artist Rockwell's Childhood Memories - featuring Kito and Sam Frank - is a complete graphic reimagining of your childhood...

"I wanted to create a graphical nostalgic trip back through the 80s and 90s using explosive animations to conjure up memories from the past," says Jack. "Using basic shapes and trippy kaleidoscopes, I hope to take you on a synchronised symphonic journey through the depths of your childhood!

"I used Red Giant's Trapcode echospace, a kaleidoscopic plugin in After Effects to refract the toys that I shot in front of a chroma key background. There's some places in the song where 16 toys are split into stars of 64 refractions!"

It helps that Jack has a great toy collection, and he creates some glorious composite images with them. Thunderbirds fans are in for a special treat...
