"Stuntman Jimmy and the Flaming Keyring"

Stuntman Jimmy & The Flaming Keyring from Wield on Vimeo.

"Stuntman Jimmy and the Flaming Keyring." This is a brilliant little stop motion animation from Ryan Kothe, founder of Wield, a New Zealand animation outfit.

It's an interesting stop motion that shows attention to details of the craft. It also appears as though he went to some effort to get things just right as the car leaps through the keyring - and, if you notice, that is exactly what it is. A standard keyring like you might have in your pocket.

I am betting this little video took a lot of time to put together.

It's a fun little trifle that shows the possibilities of animation by anyone, anywhere in the world. Even Down Under.

Also, as a bonus, here's another one as well from Kothe, which involves shavings. Evidently, he spent a whole lot of time shaving down things for this project. Why? I have no idea, but it's kind of cool to watch things disintegrate.

It's all quite detailed and strange, and I love the creepy background music, too!
