Phenome is the story of the life of a small circle, told by Kevin Folk. It was completed entirely through Hand Animation. All of the frames were drawn by hand, with pencil on paper, and then layered with an acrylic-stained acetate transparency to provide the background coloration. The short minute-and-a-half piece totals near 1000 frames, and took many hours to complete.
The audio is an original recording, taken from an improvised session between Kevin Folk (on bottles), Ryan Goh (on Piano), and Korey Carter (on percussion).
The final frames and audio were layered together in Final Cut.
