How much time do you spend waiting for stuff to load?
Not as much time as animator Raphael Vangelis took to put together this video, that’s for sure.
The two-minute long video sees 30 different and familiar loading screens playing in stop motion.
You’ll probably recognise the Windows, Google and Facebook ones, including some that’ll make you pause wondering why they look so familiar.
“I spend most of my life swearing at the computer because it’s crashed or isn’t working,” said the London-based animator in his video description.
“Here, well known digital symbols are turned into something analogue and playful. The result is a homage to all the lost time we collectively spend in digital limbo.”
Vangelis first started working on this video one-and-a-half years ago.
“I started 1.5 years ago thinking…ah, this will probably take me like four, max five months,” said Vangelis.
“I 3D-printed every model myself and got deep into 3D printing which is not as straightforward as one would think.”
And if you think that sounds tiring, just take a look at his behind-the-scenes video.
10/10 for effort.
