Jukebox by Run Wrake

This is an amazing film by the late Run Wrake. Its well worth watching if you 
haven't seen it and he has many other amazing films as well. The way he made
these experimental films by hand is staggering. I remember seeing one of his 
frames at the Royal College and how he managed to arrange such complex 
images while also thinking about how they move through time is really 
astounding. I hope one day my paintings are as interesting as his films.
