Alphabets Heaven – Birthday from diplodok493 on Vimeo.

It has been extraordinary to watch the explosion of animation talent, as digital and traditional techniques merge, making newly-practical the role of the individual, independent animation artist. Today’s truly lovely example comes from young Łódź, Poland-based animator Renata Gąsiorowska, who collaborates with music label King Deluxe on a video for Brighton, UK band Alphabets Heaven. (We covered King Deluxe and their love for videos last fall.)

Against the focused whimsy of that music, Renata’s animation weaves a fanciful narrative, perfectly timed to the pacing and flow of the tune. See the in-progress image from her blog below.
