Animation innovators The Theory do it again with the tiniest police chase ever

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

The writer/director team Tom Jenkins and Simon Sharp aka The Theory put themselves firmly in the forward-animation spectrum with their brilliantly innovative (and viral) Address is Approximate film last year. Their latest offering Speed of Light is no less ingenious in its effort to tell a good story using unique methods, this time with projection mapping on a tiny scale. Using the smallest “pocket video projectors” and some crafty, CGI-free editing, they directed a Lilliputian jail-break and tiniest ever police car chase across a random interior that sees everyday items help and hinder the dramatic race. Lovely stuff.
