Really great short stop-motion animation directed by Irish film-maker Johnny Kelly and produced by Nexus Productions. The film was commissioned by Chipotle Mexican Grill and depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future.
“The pace and timeline of the film is captured beautifully in camera using traditional stop frame model animation techniques to track the life of a farmer. Filmed in one sweeping take the film was painstakingly animated over 4-weeks on one large all-encompassing model background.”
Watch the animation and the behind the scenes video below to see the whole process over the 4 weeks of making. You can find more films by Johnny Kelly here. The song is ‘The Scientist’ by Coldplay performed by Willie Nelson and is available here on iTunes.
