Hum CGI with a "vintage feel"
I thought this was quite imaginative and entertaining.

Are we watching a laterally inverted image?

Or was it made by a millennial? The record playing arm is facing into the motion of the record - after previous discussions of people getting this wrong... Though later, the screwdriver is inserting a screw with a left-hand thread and screws are still around.

Re: Hum CGI with a "vintage feel"
As all the letters are the correct way around I am assuming its just a lack of understanding how these things work.

SWMBO is always chiding me for complaining about out of place radios/cars/roads/buildings etc so now I try to let go a bit more.

It's a bit Americanised as well, but I took to all the valve/bulbs rattling and hiding in a box, and the little robot breathing new life into the workshop.

Technically its poorly rendered but as entertainment I thought it was OK. :thumbsup:

Yes, good fun! But I can't un-see the backwards screw or record.

A number of commenters had the same thought!

From what I can make out it was made in Denmark in 2009 as a final year project for a university specialising in animation. It looks like one of the team now works in London and has been involved in many US blockbusters. I am sure the backward rotation is intentional as art students in 2009 would have definitely been into 'vinyl' (it's probably just to annoy the pedantic!).
