Aug(De)Mented Reality - Animation Cels Come Alive

Aug(De)Mented Reality - Animation Cels Come Alive.

Combining traditional animation cels and video from an iPhone 5s, Marty Cooper (aka Hombre_mcsteez) creates wacky animated creatures in normal landscapes that do just about everything that you don't expect them to do.

Under his handle Hombre_mcsteez, Cooper has become a youtube sensation, and for good reason. It must take him quite a while to get his shots down just right, as he combines wackiness with extreme precision to create jarring juxtapositions. His hand-drawn cels "interact" with the environment in such a way that he deserves a doctorate in video animation techniques (heck, he may have one for all I know).

This is one of those examples of how you can do more with less, illustrating that you don't need the fanciest hardware and software to entertain. One could say that this is the true current "Modern Art," not the stuff hanging in the museums.
