To be honest I can't say that I was directly influenced by a particular artist in creating this movie. I do know that I really enjoy watching things that are often taken for granted, but are just simply amazing. Examples of this are ultra-slow motion films on youtube where you can see a balloon being popped, the spray of water droplets or watching the percussion travel through the body of someone being punched.
Growing up I always enjoyed watching popcorn being made in the popcorn maker, I would just sit and watch for the whole 5 minutes that it took to pop, watching in slowing escalate in to just chaos. This is what I attempted to recreate.
Watching stop motion films online, one thing that was always shared in common was some sort of a plot or storyline, and this I added at the end of the film.
