Animator Patrick Neary contributed to this Apple “Life on iPad” video featured at the company’s October 2013 special keynote event and this gorgeous new webpage:

For the project, Patrick designed, built and painted a Martian planet set and rocket ship, created space explorers and aliens, and created a few seconds of animation magic as the characters meet for the first time and do the moonwalk. The animation was filmed on an iPad, using Stop Motion Studio Pro, and the creative process was captured in time-lapse, featured in the above video at 1:25. Enjoy!
