He Hid Behind a Culture and a Wall

A 2D digitally animated music video for the song ‘He Hid Behind a Culture and a Wall’ by Yossarian. This was a passion project keeping to the single premise of taking a line for a walk.

Without being obvious, I tried reflect the meaning of the song, to demonstrate the unending feeling of instability – of a post-Brexit, Trump-led USA.

The animation was primarily done in Adobe Animate ( flash) and some Photoshop with some later editing and comping in Aftereffects. I was new to animation and the piece demonstrates a learning curve whilst trying to maintain a simple style.

I was animating straight ahead, mostly focusing on practicing and experimenting so I’ve very little to show as storyboards as such but I will be adding some sketches soon.
