Monsters - Motion Poetry

In adapting Dorothea Lasky’s poem into an animated short, Method visualized a simple story told by a young girl as her dreams and reality converge. Artists created a painterly, slightly gothic aesthetic reminiscent of moving Van Gogh artwork. Method achieved a 2D animation effect by applying the type of FX typically used for explosions and similar activities, to 3D animation in a highly technical workflow.
