‘Woodswimmer’ by Brett Foxwell

Music video for Conor Grebel’s “Woodswimmer” directed and animated by Brett Foxwell:

Made with a stop motion process of capturing sections of wood as they are thinly shaved away by a milling machine:

The sequences are cross-sectional photographic scans of pieces of hardwood, burls, and branches. It is a straightforward technique but one which is brutally tedious to complete.

    I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside Brett. He’s a truly gifted armature maker with some other amazing stop motion pieces really worth checking out.
