One of the oldest forms of animation meets Action Cam by Sony in this custom animation system designed and created by Studio Nos. This delightful process and its results involve a remote-controlled car pod, painstaking craftsmanship and a parade of illustrated, dancing mushrooms.

How it was made:

The Action Cam was placed inside a remote-controlled car-rig that traveled around the circular path of an animation system. Animation frames were mounted on the wall of the system. The camera shoots as it travels in it’s car-pod along the path, creating the effect of an animated zoetrope. The camera operator controlled the camera and what it was seeing with the Action Cam’s Live-View Remote. The Action Cam was also mounted to a Jib arm for crane shots.

The car-pod, the animation system, the mounts and rigs, as well as every frame of animation was conceived and designed by Studio Nos for this project.
