The Rest is Science: a new animation by Adam Wells
The Rest is Science is my short follow up to Brave New Old. The orignal idea with Brave New Old was to employ a mechanical storytelling element to the work, almost like a toy theatre. In the follow up, I decided to try extending this literally by placing all the characters in a giant machine that would tell the story. I also wanted to work directly with a musician from the start and cut the film to their track. So I worked with Brendan Hogan and our collaboration here has lead to a much larger project altogether.
