Paper Cut London: A Short Skate Film Printed on Paper


A film printed on paper? It’s a novel concept taken on by Philip Evans, whose skateboarding short, Paper Cut London,¬†recently found its way onto Vimeo’s staff picks with its distinct marriage of digital and analog. Each of the short’s scenes was reprinted on paper before being filmed again overlaid with other textures and hand-drawn illustrations. The short stars Jak Pietryga alongside Chris Jones.¬†

Paper Cut London was filmed, edited, and animated by Philip Evans, with animation assistance by David Hermansson. Music by Gibbo. Intrigued by the technique? Evans is posting behind-the-scenes shots on his instagram: @dr.phil.evans.
