Cubism 1981

2 mins United Kingdom Director. Laurie Calvert

Few objects look as simultaneously futuristic and old-fashioned as the Rubik's Cube. Add in a touch of stop-motion magic via a Super 8mm camera and you have an abstract amateur opus. Inspired by the Star Wars franchise, Laurie Calvert set out to make his own films, mostly science fiction shorts. His techniques evolved from jiggling action figures in front of the camera to using CGI in the feature The War of the Starfighters, finished in 2003.
