This project started in 2009. The idea was: Every time I pop in a new roll of film into my camera, use a few frames to do a bit of animation. This was to be a ritual I'd enact every roll of film.
The first time I put this practice into action, I actually went through about 3 rolls. It's easy to get swept up in the spirit of making inanimate objects move.
I kept adding onto the animation when I'd get an idea of what should happen next. After awhile, I tired of it, and forgot about it.
At the end of 2010, I decided it needed to be wrapped up, finished or not. So I did a couple days of sound design, and titles/credits. The sound added quite a lot, and made me appreciate all the work I'd done.
There was a live action portion that never made it into the film, starring Aaron Zonka and myself as grumpy starving British men stuck in a room. For undisclosed reasons, it was too dangerous for them to leave the room, so they made due with the few bits of food they still had—apple cores with various spices.
