Celebrating The Ordinary

For my latest University project, I was set the brief to 'celebrate the ordinary'. From the given list, I chose to celebrate elastic. Here is my solution:

Yep, all the sounds were created by twanging elastic bands. Oh and the project, from research to conception, development, filming and editing etc was completed in a week.

I have to finish this post with my favourite piece of work produced. Fellow course mate Matthew produced this film to celebrate the umbrella.

The amount of work put in to create this much stop frame animation in a week is incredible, well done Matt. But more than just a lot of work, this film is funny, moving and just a great piece of story telling.


  1. Wicked! It'd be cool if you elaborated by making an animation to fit around the sounds. It's amazing as it is though.

  2. Thankyou! It's weird you should say that because I was originally going to do an animation. In the end I decided to keep it as simple as possible, as is my way. I thought that people wouldn't realise that the sounds were made by elastic bands - so I even stuck a microphone in there for good measure!

    As it turns out, people thought I'd cheated anyway. Maybe when I've got some time I'll do an animation so there are two options!
