An animation for Neil Gaiman’s Calendar of Tales series. This theme is August, based on the following phrase: “August would speak of its empire tasting forever whilst glancing warily at the leaves cooking on the trees.

It’s a quiet animation. I borrowed a technique that I’ve seen Inga Birgisdóttir (Sigur Ros) use. Keep it quiet. Let the audio float the viewer to the next step.

The animation was built using Photoshop and PremierePro. There are about 60 layers that sit upon each other in different order to present the visual aspect of this story.

This project initiated by the Blackberry #keepmoving project.
