Short Film: ‘Micro Mayhem!’ Gets Fast and Furious with Claymation

Micro Mayhem

Why Watch? This short from the team behind Robot Chicken cuts to the chase right away. In fact, it’s pretty much all chase, but it’s also a fantastic display of claymation molded to absurd, explosive heights.

Beyond the usual applause for painstaking stop-motion, the highlights here are clever ways of framing the destruction (battling inside the tunnel is especially cool) and a sound design fueled by gasoline and burnt rubber. Bombastic joy on a small scale, it’s a fun adrenaline rush that would bring a smile to Quentin Tarantino’s face.

What Will It Cost? About a minute and a half.
