Journey Through A Melting Brain (The Stratacut of David Daniels)
David Daniels is the master of strata-cut animation
, "a form of clay animation in which a long bread-like "loaf" of clay, internally packed with varying imagery, is sliced into thin sheets, with the animation camera taking a frame of the end of the loaf for each cut, eventually revealing the movement of the internal images within.... [I]n strata-cut, you build your imagery not just in X, Y, and Z space, but also considering time as a dimension, and the most important one." Daniels' films
are mesmerizing explosions of color. In an interview with Art of the Title, he discusses the history of the process, his own trajectory, and how to make your own strata-cut animation
(in a video demo at the bottom of the page).
