Just came across this great animated short film by Lauri Warsta who just graduated from the Royal College of Art, London.
Dictaphone Parcel is an animation based on a sound recorded with a dictaphone travelling secretly inside a parcel. As the hidden recorder travels through the global mail system, from London to Helsinki, it captures the unexpected. We hear a mixture of abstract sounds, various types of transport and even discussions between the mail workers. The animation visualizes this journey by creating an imaginary documentary.
Dictaphone Parcel was awarded the Passion Pictures Prize in London, in February 2010.
Such a brilliant idea. Lauri’s got a pretty impressive portfolio as well, check it out here.
