Video: Magnetic putty

Joey Shanks (ShanksFX from PBS Digital Studios) created this video powered by awesome power of magnetic putty.

PBS Digital Studios and Shanks FX used magnetic putty in parts of their recent film short SCI-FLY. They posted this extended cut of special effects shots a few days ago. Is this what you’d see in real time? No. These clips are sped up. The actual motion of magnetic putty consuming other objects is barely perceptible in real time.
