“L’ILLUSION DE JOSEPH”, AMAZING SHORT ANIMATION BY PASK D’AMICO

Today I want to present a stunning short animation created and directed by the Italian Pask D'Amico (Pasquale D’Amico) for Klesha Production.
Some time ago, Pasquale came across the phenachistoscope (also known as phantasmascope or phantascope), an antique optical instrument that displays animated images, invented by Joseph Plateau in 1832. On the Internet he found the scans of these nineteenth-century beautiful images with patterns and drawings in movement, and he started to experiment with digital animation. After some attempts Pasquale started to combine these animations, trying to create something original and unpublished. Then, to stay on topic he created a stop motion with nineteenth-century paper toys that open and close the video. Music is by musician Al Maranca.
From all this work comes "L'illusion de Joseph" in honor of Joseph Plateau, inventor of phenachistoscope. Here you can find some frames, for full video follow the link.
