New Zealand singer/songwriter Luke Thompson gets an animated video for his ballad Slow Boat To China from recent illustration/animation grad Dan Jacobs, with a lovely graphic style and a simplicity which came from Dan working to a very tight deadline, once he’d been commissioned to make the video, having submitted his treatment via Radar.
“The imagery in the lyrics is very strong, so that naturally became the focal point,” says Dan. “Keeping the narrative simple enabled me to focus on getting the art style right, especially with the time constraints. My main goal was to capture the mood and pace of the song whilst reflecting its sentiment.”
