A Japanese artist spent four years of his spare time making the animated film Junk Head 1, and it's stunning. Take a look for yourself...
Grotesque, atmospheric and unpredictable, the half-hour stop motion film Junk Head 1 would be an impressive piece of work even from an established animation studio. But remarkably, Japanese artist Takahide Hori made it almost entirely by himself, creating all the characters and sets and shooting it one frame at a time.
This painstaking process took four years, and even more astonishingly, Hori held down a full-time job while making it - what you see below is the product of many, many late nights and busy weekends.
Set in a future where genetic aberrations scurry about in underground caverns, its story is told through the eyes of a human who's exploring this unfamiliar world for the first time himself. »
