Night Heron makes stunning non-digital animation: mysterious micro video, GIFs aplenty, and commissioned works for independent filmmakers, live theater, bands, and brands.
This music video for Brooklyn’s A Place To Bury Strangers uses a broad variety of visual styles — including stop-motion with paper puppets, ink on paper, watercolor, and paint-on-glass animation — in a noir-influenced, handcrafted animated tribute to French and Japanese New Wave auteurs of the late ’60s. SPECIAL MENTION: Fest Anča 2016
Made entirely by hand and animated without digital effects, "Greyhound Blues" explores themes of traveling and childhood while drawing from the visual mythology of 1950s roadside America -- especially where it overlaps with the American Southwest. OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cutout Fest, Cucalorus, Animation Block Party, Animasyros, Anibar.
Night Heron created five animated sequences for Bootown's White Raven, a live shadow puppet theater production exploring the life of a bird born with the wrong color feathers.
