Cyriak's Animations

Cyriak is an animator whose video Cows & Cows & Cows has logged more than 25 million views.
His videos typically show animals moving to a dance beat through increasingly surrealistic transformations. The results are cute, disturbing, and mesmerizing.

In this documentary, we meet the artist in his Brighton, England studio and visit his sources of inspiration: video games in the local arcade, pickled specimens in the museum, and animal antics on a local farm.

His process starts with digitally cut-out photos and stock videos, animated with Adobe Aftereffects. Cyriak's latest video is called Chimpnology
