Film student Adam Grabowski was assigned the task of creating the show packaging for the 2011 Motion Graphics Showcase, at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. In a throwback to early animation he built five animation machines including (in order of appearance) a cassette player thaumatrope, a fan powered hamster wheel, a hand-held blender drum, an awesome motorized skateboard/image belt, and a drill powered flip book. In an age where almost anything you can imagine can be created digitally—especially in the realm of motion graphics—this is a welcome and captivating direction.
