This video was created using a zoetrope machine that spools multiple 14 foot long x 3 inch, paper animation belts at very high speed, to produce the animations. The band members of Appomattox were kind enough to step inside the machine and put their faces 3 inches from the extremely fast moving, and loud, paper belts for this piece. Fortunately, no major facial paper cuts were incurred.
