Animation can be a long, arduous process that requires God like patients, however after taking part in a real-time arts project, director David Wilson discovered that combining praxinoscopes with custom record labels created a much faster form of animation that could be completed fully in-camera; without the need for any post or 3D manipulation. David joins us to discuss the process and why a hands on approach to working can lead to new creative discoveries.

The transitions between each section of animation was created by simply cutting or wiping between the bits of footage.
