An animated bumper commissioned by Howler, and inspired by the print pattern for their "Skulls and Begonias" mutation. Stop-motion elements were shot in Dragonframe. Hand-drawn elements (fish, skulls, and mosquitos) were tested in pencil on paper, inked with technical pens on vellum, then scanned and composited in After Effects.

Producer: Chase Heard (for Howler)
Stop-Motion, Traditional 2D Animation, Editing: Dave Merson Hess
Scanning and Digital Asset Prep: Audrey Bandrowski, Justin Taber
Color Correction Assistance: Marco North
