Hundreds of motorcycles are animated frame by frame in this homage to the iconic motorcycle design of the 1950s and 60s. A rider prepares his bike and departs on an idealised journey into the countryside and into the future.
“The productive Paul Bush has written, directed, animated, and edited this short film which is a tour de force. A history lesson on the motorbike using 5 minutes edits in stop motion presenting hundreds of models. Not a lesson on the evolution of mankind, but on the motorbike, thanks to the treasures of Musea da Moto José Pereira in Portugal”. (L'Extra Court)
