Dolphin Burger Studios, a workshop for disabled artists and animators in Brighton, England, has produced a fan-remake of the memorable stop-motion music video for Peter Gabriel’s "Sledgehammer".
Workshop founder Harry Hunt hit on the idea after coming across the Android app Clayframes, which can be operated by sound and gesture, and thus uniquely suited to animators whose mobility is limited. "We picked Sledgehammer because a lot of our local audience may have difficulty following a complex narrative, but everyone likes to dance, so we thought about making a music video," Hunt tells Cartoon Brew. "Then the thought occurred to try and remake the most famous stop-mo music video of all time!"
The original video is best remembered for its pixilation, but Dolphin Burger’s remake is a mixture of live-action, clay animation, drawn animation, and other techniques. The results have won the praise of Aardman, the studio responsible for the original music video.
This is not the only project from Dolphin Burger Studios, which was founded in 2012. The group’s animators have created a few other shorts, the most recent being a narrative piece entitled FOAS vs The Ringmaster.
