Jeremy Messersmith, "A Girl, A Boy, and a Graveyard"
We've made no secret that we're big fans of Eric Power's paper animations around here. This video, one of two Power has made for Minnesota's Jeremy Messersmith, has a spooky shadow puppet aesthetic that was inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. Power worked with silhouettes for a pared-down look. "Shadow animation helped me achieve my yearly goal of working with paper in the most minimal way possible," he said. "Working with silhouettes is about as minimal as you can get."
