This is a pretty cool short film called "Fabricated" about 20 minutes long. Loads of machines and mechanisms in it that I think will appeal to many here.

Took the guy 10 years to make. All stop motion with models, no CGI involved. Says it ended up taking about 3 hours for each second of finished video. The short "making of" video is here:

I found it pretty entertaining.

Wow. A very impressive show of dedication, creativity and talent. There's no way I could ever do anything on the same level, much less something as intangible as a film.

All that could have so easily been done with computer generated shapes and motion. It's totally amazing that it was done as stop action with so many actual machined art parts. And at a year per minute or so of actual animation all I can say is that team has a LOT more patience than I do.

But I'm a bit perplexed at the outcome. Clearly the ball hip joint was copied in the new medium. But what was the outcome of the micro machine cellular development? So many questions.... and I seriously doubt I'll live long enough for the sequel with the answers.

That's what amazed me about the whole thing, the level of commitment required to pull that all off. I wish I had a tiny fraction of that much imagination and dedication to see something like that through.

That's all I see also. Bummer!

Not actually a team, it was just one guy. First got linked to that video here: https://makezine.com/2018/08/21/this-stop-motion-animation-is-a-machinists-dream/

That link worked. Reminds me of "This Old Tony" shop videos on YouTube. He usually has some stop-motion bits in his videos.
