Tyler, The Creator’s interests have always reached far beyond music. Whether it’s clothing design, video direction, or photography, Tyler is always open to learning new ways to use his creativity, which is more or less the premise of “Nuts & Bolts,” his show on VICELAND. Episode One of the series follows Tyler as he learns how stop motion works, speaking to the experts like Henry Sellick (James And The Giant Peach) and the animators at Stoopid Buddy Studios (Robot Chicken).
After getting an idea of the craft, Tyler sets out to make his own stop-motion short with the help of his good friend Jasper. The final product can be seen at the 20:26 mark of the episode. Watch the full thing above.
