Chris Ullens directs a hand-drawn animated video for Alexander 23's IDK You Yet. 

A poetic visual interpretation of the track's themes, the concept is pared-back and reminiscent of early animation. Rough pencil sketches intertwine with experimental crayon drawings, creating a contemporary aesthetic with an experimental edge, made possible by the team of animators and their own unique styles. 

Switching up in pace and technique at regular intervals, the video is a beautiful accompaniment to the track, and a poignant exploration of how we communicate with each other when we can't be together.
