Gunshop | Hoppy New Year from Gunshop on Vimeo.

Create Animal Motion? Stacy Nimmo, founder and creative director of San Francisco-based motion shop Gunshop sends over their New Years’ creation. This is a bit too cute not to post. And I like nerding out about number sequences. (Composing with <0123> pitch sets this year, anyone?)

As much as we love getting (and giving) fancy holiday cards, we love making clever videos more. In the brainstorming for the video, we discovering the relationship between the number sequence 0123 and 2013. After dozens of less original ideas, we arrived at the concept of a frog powered anagram. Working with our talent Shela (the Australian White’s Frog) had it’s challenges, but in the end, we were all happy with the performance (and the post magic). To celebrate her success, Shela ate a dozen crickets followed by a remarkably large bowel movement.

Happy New Year []
