Animation: Andersen M create exceptional Shackleton promo from old maps

Posted by Rob Alderson,

There’s a nice juxtaposition which occurs when you bring craft-intensive stop-motion together with big, significant themes and this latest work from east London-based Andersen M studio is a case in point. For a new show on the Discovery Channel documenting Ernest Shackleton’s perilous Antarctic rescue mission of 1914, they developed this stunning promo animation made solely from antique navigation maps of the South Pole region. This is a really beautiful and powerful piece of stop-motion excellence and manages to create a terrifyingly tense ambience: – Andersen M at their very very best.
