If you're a Stanely Kubrick fan, this animation by motion designer Joe Donaldson is something that you should see.
Stanley Kubrick has always been an inspiration for motion designer Joe Donaldson. One of Kubrick’s most notable films is 2001: A Space Odyssey and for one of Donaldson’s projects, he created a hand-drawn animation using some scenes from the movie. The science fiction movie deals with the past and future in contrast. The artist wanted to incorporate this on his work so he decided to combine two mediums — hand-drawn, and computer animation.
There are two sides to the process to come up with the final product – the hand-drawn elements and the ones that are rotoscoped. Unlike his other projects, he didn’t have an idea of what he wanted the final animation to be. As he went along and did the project, he just trusted that he would get good results. The idea behind it is that each element will not be able to function alone. Instead, they would complement each other for the project to work. The photos above show his workstation and some stills from the animation.

Throwing chemicals, fire, and scratching emulsion are just a few ways of experimenting with film. But there's another process that completely destroys it (or, if you're lucky, creates something amazing), that is as spastic as a drunken man staggering his way home after a night at the pub - literally.
And it all comes down to darkness.
