What is the film about?

Between 1857 and 1862, Billy and Charley produced over 5000 counterfeit antiques in their South London workshop, until they were unmasked by Henry Syer Cuming. Many artifacts still figure in museum collections today.
This film was produced at London College of Communication for the MA Animation course in partnership with the Coming Museum.

How was the film made?

The film consists in a stop motion animation using nothing but chains that mould interacting silhouettes, and was created for the Cuming Museum, in London.

@themooks @skwigly I know it's kind of obvious, but I used to see it as 'important but secondary'. I don't see it as secondary any more.
