Experiencing Interruptions?

DO NOT Push The Red Button!

If you're planning on playing an annoying concertina solo and a large robot arm puts a red button in front of you, DO NOT push it. Particularly if you're a small, animated, red blob named Stig. It could potentially set off a Rube Goldberg machine resulting in dominoes falling, balls rolling, anvils crashing, and a very flattening finale.

Director Statement

The challenge with creating a narrative rather than just a panoramic view is to keep the viewer looking in the right direction. I decided to use a Rube Goldberg machine to focus the action in a mostly linear direction. The viewer is of course free to look anywhere though!

Apart from the character animation, the entire movie is a MassFX physics simulation. It took several hundred simulations before everything finally worked.

Recommended viewing using a tablet or Smartphone with the YouTube app, or a VR headset for the full spinning experience!
