Drifting is a short animation project I did with Alice. Our artistic styles are different but we managed to blend the two quite easily. The story takes you into a young girl’s dream as she escapes the physical world and floats through the night sky. The music was an old track I had recorded a while ago and was a clear starting point for the mood and emotion of the piece. Its slow pace and melancholy piano chords set the tone for our visual palette. The colours and textures we chose were directly influenced by the music. We wanted to create a surreal dreamworld that reflected the aesthetics of a children’s book.
