Music Video: Moray McLaren "We Got Time" with in-camera praxinoscope animation

Praxinoscopes are slightly updated versions of zoetropes, which use mirrors to display the frames of animation instead of slits in the spinning cylinder, dating back to 1877. In the 1950s a company called "Red Raven" released records that displayed a little over a second of animation.

David Wilson used this technique to create the video for Moray McLaren's "We Got Time", an okay song (sounds a bit like Travis) with a captivating video that produces all its effects in-camera. The music video is above, but you might just as well like the howto, behind-the-scenes video from David Wilson that is embedded below. [via Mefi]
