Animation: Chain Reaction (2011)

As featured on cult fixed gear forum fixed.gr

This was my first stop motion short that experiments with the animation of decidedly inanimate objects. At the time of this post, I had just begun the restoration of a 1960s British track frame, so bicycle parts were on my mind...

Although I chose a bike chain because of its highly articulated joints, it was precisely this degree of freedom that made it incredibly difficult to control. If you ever try something like this, I suggest using a flexible magnetic sheet underneath the parts to restrict their motion for greater control.
