This Psychedelic 60-Second Animation Took Four Months to Produce

May 6, 2013 | Andy Cush

Last time we showed you one of Jake Fried’s maximalist hand-drawn animations, we could only speculate as to the insane amount of effort behind it. Now, we have some hard facts. At 60 seconds long and 25 frames per second, that’s a mind-boggling 1500 frames scanned into Photoshop and pieced together in Final Cut, a process Fried says took four months to complete. Apparently, the paper was several inches thick at the end of Fried’s work, which involves copious layers of white out. Try to keep all that in mind as everything unfolds in under a minute’s time.
