The Animatic is a large scale entertaining machine. Triggered by playing a 45 record at it's start. The turntable's motion sets off a series of small individual animating machines. These all take inspiration from simple animation techniques from flick books to shadow puppets. The viewer follows to chain of machines, one by one, to piece together a narrative. The machine is created out of everyday objects and uses clever kinetic and mechanical mechanisms. By the time the viewer reaches the end of the song the they will have seen in essence a music video for the chosen record, which in this instance is "Memphis Tennessee" by Silicon Teens.
