The film grain effect is a little too heavy, but the interplay between cel animation and 3D is fun and well-realized. The whole thing was created in six months using Toon Boom Studio, 3DS Max and After Effects.
I also like the fact that the homages to Chaplin’s classic Modern Times are founded upon the music’s early jazz heritage. Gives the whole thing a sense of thoughtful cohesiveness.
Props to Joel for the tip!
