I think it works wonderfully and the animation techniques used here include the hand-drawn elements as well as cut outs, stop motion and replacement animation.The animation is based on AE Housman’s World I Never Made and the music is Eon Blue Apocalypse by Tool. Here is part of the poem.

Of man’s bedevilment and God’s?
I, a stranger and afraid
In a world I never made.
