Winner of the Vimeo Weekend Project "Illustrate a Story". The story of how my parents met and fell in love, retold in a modern setting through video, doodles, and animation. Filmed and edited in about a total of 8-10 hours.
I got this idea after the vimeo weekend challenge "Illustrate a Story" was announced. The rules were to record audio of someone telling a story, and then illustrate that story through whatever visual style you wanted. I've always thought the way my parents met was really interesting and fun so I decided to do that. My goal was to keep it as simple as possible, especially with audio as it's only narration and minimal use of sound effects. I've always been a fan of the quirky mix of still shots, video, illustration and text. I hope you enjoy it.
