Animation Using Office Supplies Only

A GIRL NAMED ELASTIKA from Guillaume Blanchet I Filmmaker on Vimeo.
Canadian-based film-maker Guillaume Blanchet has produced a short film which takes us through the adventures of Elastika - a girl crafted entirely out of elastic bands and thumbtacks. The charming three and a half minute stop-motion animation was created using everyday office supplies and takes place on a cork board - a deceptively intricate project that took Mr Blanchet nine months to complete. A Girl Named Elastika, which has won awards, follows the fearless character on an epic voyage around the world, set to the tune of a catchy soundtrack. The plucky character crosses oceans, stops by Paris's Eiffel Tower and San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, passes through a casino and a magical firework display, and even explodes into space - all built with the very simplest of office staples. Her mode of transport morphs from a car to a boat to a spaceship, and finally a colorful bunch of balloons which carry her gracefully to the moon. The short film made its debut on Vimeo last week and has gained over 4,000 'likes' already.
