Paper Animation of Prometheus Trailer


This obsessively faceted little gem made me smile so wide, I thought an alien lifeform was going to burst forth from my face! This shot-by-shot homage to the Prometheus trailer is done with 100% paper (and flashlights). It was directed, edited and paper-construction by Travis Betz (aka “The Receptionist” on YouTube). I guess people are so besides themselves with anticipation for this film, they’re making cargo cult-like folk art out of whatever little glimpses they can catch of this thing.
