A couple weeks ago, I got to help out with production company Ghost Robot's animated sequence for the Bonnaroo festival this year. By "help out", I mean cut paper with X-Acto Blades for eight hours a day. All of THIS is cut paper animation, shot though thirteen layers of glass (no computer assist) Check it out, it is AMAZING:

My hands ache looking at it, the way Grandpa's hands ached when it would rain, or when you pushed bamboo skewers under his nails.
