The Life Size Zoetrope is the celebratory life story of one man told via a one-take live action shot of a giant zoetrope containing the film. We are taken through the cyclical journey the man has taken as it is presented to us through animated loops on pages and body parts of 36 riders on the wheel. Mixtures of emotions fill the film, from the celebration of creativity to its eventual loneliness, regret and repetition.
