Bad Things That Could Happen is one of those “I wish I’d thought of that” short films made with giant props by artsy collective This Is It. The large props are given life by white clad collective members who embody and move the giant objects around. Bad things start happening when fly’s lands on a sandwich, a cigarette is left burning in an ashtray and a rotten egg is cracked.
With such simple scenes this short film is a fantastic use of one brilliant idea. This It Collective seem like a bunch of cool cats, made up of illustrators, animators, artists and designers based in London. They have previously collaborated on music videos for the likes of Everthing Everything, made fashion videos, pop up up shops, animations, books and well you get the idea.
