The Gap Animation

Late 2020, I stumbled upon The Gap video beautifully created by Daniel Sax and powerfully voiced by Ira Glass. Intrigued and inspired, I embarked on creating my own. 

I directed and animated this narrative animation using a mix of typography, imagery, and 2D design elements. 

The basketball game serves as a visual backdrop paying homage to one of the all-time basketball greats, Allen Iverson.

Allen Iverson is not only known for being a high scorer at barely six feet but also for revolutionizing the NBA dress code. His fierce ambition and ability to challenge the status quo match up with Ira Glass' main message. 

The type animation is inspired by my year-long type exploration that focussed on the theme of movement and play.
