Chris Herridge started out with just a collection of snaps as he stripped down an engine bought off ebay. (To replace his old engine, which had suffered catastrophic failure). The snaps were so that he remembered how everything went, so it could put it back together again.
Here is what Chris had to say:
Then I realised it’d be quite cool to make it an animation. found some suitable music, rekindled my ancient knowledge of Premiere, storyboarded it, shot it as I worked on the engine (my poor DSLR got covered in engine oil), this was the result.
The music is “In The Hall Of The Mountain King” from Edvard Griegs “Peer Gynt Suite”
