They say it takes only 8.2 seconds to fall in love...

'Love Hitch' is a psychedelic journey that visualizes the cognitive process of forgetting a lost love; an experience that represents the chemical reactions in our brains.

Inspired by the groundbreaking visual effects of films like '2001: A Space Odyssey', 'The Fountain' and 'Tree Of Life' and the works of video artists like William Kentridge, Chris Cunningham and Danny Perez, 'Love Hitch' was created over a year long process. It combines live footage shot from all over the United States as well as over 7,000 individual stop motion images that were animated on a flat bed scanner. None of the images seen in the film are computer-generated.
