Macondo Blowout (2013)

Macondo Blowout from Flick Book Studio on Vimeo.

This is a video conceptualized and directed by eco-artist Christy Rupp. She became one of the pioneering artists of this field in the 70s with her rat series. She was deeply affected by the PB gulf oil spill, and decided to make an animation about it. It is the last SD video we produced before we shifted to the DSLR and Dragonframe stopmotion configuration. The picture quality is rough, but Christy’s creative use of material and her environmental message come through clearly.
