The adventures of Tom and Lysander…

This is a brilliant début stop-motion animation video filmed in a leafy Cotswold village in England. Almost made better by its jerky, lo-fi, budget, qualities, this video shows two guys slide on their chests along the ground, over a gate, and into a field where they start fighting. The fight is classic slap-stick with a modem twist – like a Buster Keaton film crossed with The Matrix. At one point the two of them are locked in a floating exchange while the camera rotates around them 360 degrees. Having decided the out come of the fight, they decide to shake hands and go for a pint. The scene in the pub is probably the best bit.

Spread the word of Tom and Lysanders adventures, look forward to the next instalment, and wish the makers of this video good luck. Lastly, the icing on the cake: they’ve chosen to use the best tune of 2002 as the soundtrack: Ghostwriter by RJD2.
