The Mountain of Should


We used hand-drawn, frame-by-frame animation to bring Brady Gill’s poem of resilience and self-acceptance to life. 

Hand-drawn animation

“The Mountain of Should” was our first completely hand-animated project. We worked in Photoshop and After Effects to add motion to the characters and landscapes.
