What Is Graphic Design For?: Type and Image- Lost Things.

A beautiful whimsical and creative stop motion animation piece, with imaginative addition of materials and paper cut methods and techniques.

The talents combined to produce the video were Angela Kohler and Jonathan Chapman (also known as 'Mr Yen'- a former LCa BAGD graduate), inspired by Alice in Wonderland to create this heavily detailed and fairytale-like animation.

All of the elements bring this short video together wonderfully, and it's precision and detail remarkable- perhaps it could be translated into print format through an animated zoetrobe or flip book, though as a video stand alone piece, it is very effective.

Very fitting to the song, 'Lost Things' by musician 'A Fine Frenzy' it encapsulates her spirit and whimsy in her songs- and would appeal to her target market and fans enormously- as well as targeting the recent resurgence in the story of 'Alice in Wonderland''s popularity, thanks to film media and culture of Tim Burton's release.
