Stop motion animator Ainslie Henderson’s process for making puppets involves gathering elements from both natural and man-made sources – everything from twigs and leaves to computer chips and radio parts. In this short film Stems, we see him create a whole orchestra of little figures out of such materials, as his narration explains why he enjoys the process of making stop motion animations so much. The characters all play together to make a kind of plinky-plonky symphony out of their weird little instruments, before slowly grinding to a halt in what turns out to be a pretty dark conclusion to the video.
