Animation for AKIVA by Wayne McCauslin
ANIMATION & DIRECTION - This video was hand drawn and painted using photoshop, 3ds max and reference videos. I was inspired by satirical works of graffiti artists such as Blu and Banksy. The locations and the identities of the characters are not specific to one nation, I was inspired by the divides in all nations. This is the simple idea of us versus them. The landscapes were taken from some of the countries that have been torn by divide, such as Vietnam, Germany, Romania, Serbia. Special thanks to artists Christopher Burrows and Linda Munro.
