This was my submission to one of Akron Film's film making competitions, The Secrets of Science. The directions were to randomly choose a scientific invention or principle from their pool and animate in whatever fashion you desire, a short explaining how that thing works. The explanation could be true or fabricated, and I obviously went with my own fabricated explanation for the workings of a record player. Tiny vinyl gremlins on your records worship the diamond on the turntable's needle, and the din of their microscopic death cries blend together when combined with the billions of subsequent death cries to form what we hear as music.

I wish I could have spent more time on this to polish it up, and build out more robust models to animate, but overall I'm fairly pleased for finishing this in only a few short days in my spare time.

The music is "Threshold" by Renegade and "Turn It Up" by Grum.
