A 3-part series directed by Studio Desk (Emily Downe & Kathrin Steinbacher) in a collaborative project with 100 animators around the world in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
After the outbreak of COVID-19 and the beginnings of global lockdown, we sent out a call to animators from around the world to send us a short animation depicting something they have experienced during the pandemic.
Over 90 animators sent us their contributions, and this is the second film out of a series of three. 
While the first film takes us through the motivation to keep each other positive, this film shows the comical side to the roller-coaster ride of emotions, the weird things we end up doing and generally going a bit crazy…
