Sean said: "It usually takes me one to two hours to make a three second clip video. I go frame by frame and don't use any motion tracking software."

Sometimes whilst shooting footage, he will get inspiration for more characters and scenes

He said "20% of ideas evolve from an initial idea into a new one. The other 10% of my ideas will just come from recording an interesting action and going on from there."

Check out this little guy doing his best to get those floors shining.

Sean said that he uses his iPhone to capture the footage and then animates on top of it. He also compiles the footage into longer videos for his YouTube channel, calling them "The Secret World Of Stuff".

"My inspiration comes from seeing what others in this genre do. I'm not the first to create things like this, but I just try to put my own personal spin on it and try things out that maybe no one has done before."

Sean says he'd love to make a full length show about his creations "I want to follow around a charismatic 'secret world of stuff' expert who introduces us to a multitude of characters who secretly live in our world.”

"What I love the most about making these videos is the magic I feel when I see them coming to life. I've always loved putting eyes on things."

"There’s something magical about making something we know is not real, feel alive. The contrast of that makes these feel so special to me and the viewer. I love that people feel an emotion from the clip or relate to the love between a leaf that has fallen to be next to another leaf.” Sean said.
