We are already familiar with the talents of Todd Watts, a graphic designer and animator based in Melbourne, Australia. You may remember the series of manipulated books depicting his favorite stories, transformed imaginative works of art. As we fast forward to this year, he had been honing his paper design skills with the team at SNASK, where they were approached by music licensing company – Epidemic Sound to collaborate in creating a stop-motion, paper crafted animation. We all know music can make or break an animation, so they lead with a resounding HELL YEAH!

This highly detailed paper sculpture took 3 weeks of build time and 4 days of shoot time day in and day out. The majority of the props have been handcrafted in paper, while the rest is built from wood.

Over the course of 3 months in early 2017, paper designer and animator Todd Watts was assisted by Graphic Designer and Illustrator Fabrizio Morra alongside the team at SNASK in Stockholm, Sweden. You can see some of the behind the scenes below.
