Firstly a full days live action shoot took place. After a preliminary edit was locked down the movie was exported as an image sequence at 12 frames per second. Each frame was scaled and printed onto paper. 2'520 frames to be precise. Using 500ml of ink and refilling the ink cartridges about 12 times each. The printouts were then cut and torn and then stop frame animated using a rostrum camera. the animation was finally re-edited and colour corrected.
I was in Melbourne for Game Connect Asia Pacific (GCAP) 09, and I found this busker standing outside Flinders Street Station in Melbourne. He was playing the hit 90's track "What Is Love" on bass guitar, Melodica, with the assistance of a loop pedal. What is remarkable (evidently) is that he did the entire thing wearing a chicken suit. The real action in this video starts at around 1:20, when he gets DOWN with the improv action on the Pianica. Enjoy.
