Moray Mclaren - We Got Time Song
The second video is an incredibly interesting video on how it was made. These are well worth watching.

If you like pre-cinema optical toys - kinetoscopes, zoetropes, magic lanterns, and the praxinoscopes, then David Wilson has just made your day in the video for "We Got Time," by Moray Mclaren.

Wilson doesn`t just rely on the charm of the medium though. Using the mechanism of rotation and looping as a starting point, he`s able to create a journey using simple but hypnotic animations that tie into the idea of life/death cycles. In it the tree of life, Tet tower(backbone of Osiris, represented in the 3 cup tower), black sun, acorn to oak, bucks, anubis, symbol/cymbal, sacred geometry, etc. Press play, and begin the adventure.

3:55 minutes

3:55 (Do you think that is a coincidence)
How it was made, incredible

Using both praxinoscopes and the technique of matching up the frame rate of the spinning record to that of the camera, no computer super-imposing was used; what you see is what rolled off the camera. The transitions between each section of animation was created by simply cutting or wiping between the bits of footage.
