If you're looking for some inspirational animations that hearken back to the days where psychedelic colors dominated the media, then check out this 'Train Logger' video. Not only will your eyes be treated to a visual feast, but the video is played over a stellar rock track that hammers away at you the way a Queens of the Stone Age song does.

The technique used to make this 'Train Logger' video is called strata-cut, which involves cutting away at a clay log while taking photographs of each cut and then compiling all of the snapshots together into a fluid animation. It's very similar to stop-motion.

The 'Train Logger' video was made by Nicos Livesey.

Implications - Consumers enjoy animations with an unrefined human-like quality to them because they've grown tired of polished computer-generated graphics that have saturated media outlets. Corporations looking to evoke personable relationships with consumers may consider utilizing analog animations for promotional campaigns.
