SUNDAY IN SHORTS: John Mayer’s Submarine Test January 1967.

Directed by Virgilio Villoresi and illustrated by Virginia Mori, this charming short film that uses beautiful hand-animated drawings as the music video for John Mayer’s song Submarine Test January 1967. The 5-minute short was filmed entirely in live-action—no effects were done in post. The filmmakers used an old pre-cinema French technique called “ombro cinema,” where moving a striped piece of transparent film across the illustrations results in a stroboscopic illusion.
