Nearly Animals

‘Nearly Animals’ is one of my latest collaborations with Nearly Normal Studio. The main idea is to invert perspectives attributing human traits, emotions, and intentions to these animals characters and showing human beings acting as trained animals. We are planning to develop this concept into a series of films targeted for children. At this stage we produced a trailer and some stills to explain the idea. I was the creative director and compositor for this project.
