London animator Maciek Janicki deftly renders an urban center paved with paper in Paper City, a short film he created in Cinema 4D. From the perspective of an unseen helicopter, we see a van travel through the paper streets, as buildings, trees, and infrastructure rise and collapse around it. The city “grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble, wrinkle and gently crease back into the ground.” Wow. Amazing work.
