This was originally a motion test for a project, I liked it so much I decided to turn it into a short side project.
Inspired by Animade's "Ready, Steady, Bang" (vimeo.com/28505330, vimeo.com/95501131), they used Flash frame by Frame animation, I used Cinema 4D with bend deformers.

Here is a link to the source files if you want to dissect it.
