This is how you butcher a record properly!

Ian Robertson directed this fantastic stop motion film for Delta Heavy’s ‘Get By’. I love the fact he has taken everyday household iconic items from the past and creatively come up with a story depicting how these could be used to make a record. It’s not a bad tune either. Anyways, fantastic execution…which you would expect with the time it took. Check this list out:

11,008 photographs were taken for the film.
3,184 photographs made the final cut.
80 Rubik’s Cubes were hired for the shoot.
10 hours to animate 18 frames of the Rubik’s Cube equaliser.
148 Subbuteo men hired for the shoot.
99 Red Balloons by Nena is the vinyl record in the opening sequence.
7 Hungry Hippos were harmed during the making of the film.
160 pick-up sticks are equalised.
1 John Hunt Little Champion Pie Machine was used as the record press.
4 hours to shoot the hungry hippos being minced.
12 photographs per second appear in the film.
6 hours to plan and shoot the camera dolly in on the minced Subbuteo.
32 days were spent animating.
