New York Times - Modern Love


Concept, design and animation for an episode of New York Times’ ongoing Modern Love series that tells the intimate story of an encounter whilst camping. The goal was to distill the dialogue into the simplest visual form to allow the audience to feel, rather than just see the story. Most of the animation was built and edited in 3D, before being painted over frame-by-frame.
