The combination of meticulous animation, awesome sound and excellent composition make this video absolutely jaw dropping construction of a set of Ministry of Sound Headphones. What is even more awe inspiring is that Paul Clements designed, built (in 3D), animated and post produced the entire piece by himself.
Starting from the cord he twists up into the construction of the speakers. After the initial speaker shell is formed, an explosion of the headphone ear cushion is created by a 3D cloth animation. He finishes the construction with tiling on the logo and completing the final gloss of the headphones outer shell. When the headphones are completely built, they swing around and come to a final resting position with the logo of Ministry of Sound Headphones. If you notice, there is a slight wobble as if they were being placed on display, which is just one of the many subtle animations that sets this piece apart from the competition.
In addition to the animation, the music selection, created by HECQ, sets the piece off by adding in different tracks as each piece is created. It is also interesting how the sound effects of the pieces building on adds a level of complexity that adds to the overall soundtrack of the animation.
