JASPER is a short animation about the dream of flight, exploring new ways to blur the lines between analogue and digital visual effects. It was filmed on a miniature set using a Blackmagic Design URSA camera on a KUKA robot arm at the University of Technology in Sydney (UTS).

JASPER is part of a practice-based research project by PhD candidate Simon Rippingale. The animation was part of a research project with the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and was produced as a collaboration between the UTS Animal Logic Academy and the Faculties of Engineering & IT and Design, Architecture & Building.
