Zoopraxiscope

Festival Trailer

A predator dashes after its prey, following its constantly changing silhouette through a spinning world. Destined to repeat this chase infinitely, as they are merely running figures in a praxinoscope.

This 50-seconds clip was designed as a promotional trailer for the Festival of Animated Film Stuttgart, and was selected as main trailer for 2010. It was nominated for an Adobe Design Achievement Award and was featured by the prestigous design magazines STASH and MOTIONOGRAPHER.
