The Animatic

June 3rd, 2009

“The Animatic” is a Rube Goldman machine developed by Yuri Suzuki and Household. It is actually a three-dimensional music video. A record player triggers a chain of small individual animating machines. These are all based on simple animation techniques from flick books to shadow puppets. The viewer follows a chain of machines to piece together a narrative. By the time the viewer reaches the end of the song they will have seen in essence a music video for the chosen record, which in this instance is “Memphis Tennessee”, a Silicon Teens cover of the classic track by Chuck Berry.
