Animation to inspire

It is haunting, arresting and beautiful. It was directed by Heidi Stohr, and animated by her, Daniel Snaddon, Chris Ntuli and Sifiso Motaung for City Slang Records in Germany.

I came across this music video for ‘Great White Bear’ by the band Dear Reader when Jake came back from visiting his cousins in South Africa. One of them, Daniel, had worked on the incredible animation seen here.

I absolutely love the feeling of the animation, the way the story board nature of production, the beautiful parallel stories, the tragedy and the nuances you pick up after watching in several times. A stunning production that is, well, inspiring.
