He Won't Hold You
by Jacob Collier (feat. Rapsody)
Jacob Collier is a musician like no other and he has trusted me with creating an animated music video for his song "He Won't Hold You".

So I created this very still world where two characters try to understand loneliness, loss and healing. The basis for the animation was created digitally and then painted frame by frame on paper. More about the process soon ;)

I was completely dedicated to this project for around 90 days in self isolation from mid April to early July 2020 during which I hand painted around 1200 drawings, using a technique that mixes digital and paper animation I've been developing since 2013.

Here's a step by step breakdown of my animation process:
