Happy just to be with You!


This short music video is a musical love letter to Childrens Book illustration and stopframe animation...all the happiness we could squeeze into one minute eight seconds.

Our Review

It feels just so happy to watch this musical short film. The animations are an interesting mix of techniques, and overall the picture looked inviting. The animation is mesmerizing the way its captured is astonishing. Very vivid choice of colors.

The soundtrack is remarkably touching as it brings imaginary, dreamy, surreal feelings with mixed-emotion. Simple and simply cute and happy to just watch it...
