Brooklyn-based filmmaker Stephen Dirkes of Obscure Object Films recently collaborated with the stop-motion production house Motiongraff to produce a short piece for the 15th episode of their series of "animated graffiti art." Thus, the animation at hand is a teaser for the release of DJ/Producer Codes' Codes House EP.
DJ Vandal, who has honed his craft specifically for stop motion documentation (among other media), as well as Motiongraff's Director of Photography Fubz:The shoot got off to a great start by destroying lots of electronic bits. Fubz created the awesome little bug creature and I went a bit crazy with the concept and developed a story in which a small bug-like creature escapes pursuit by the Motiongraff team to infect a canvas and come to life.The filmmaker worked closely with graffiti artist
We had the pleasure of working with Dirkes on an amazing time-lapse making-of video for Frederick McSwain's "Die," part of BrokenOff BrokenOff, the Tobias Wong tribute show at Gallery R'Pure, earlier this spring on the occasion of NY Design Week.
