Animated Illustrations Music Video for Phyllis Sinclair

2D Animation / Music Loop Project for music video

We made animated images, rich in clarity and colour, to create an animation / music loop project with one scene for the artist Phyllis Sinclair new song Wawatay Eh Nimihitocik. There is only one scene, but which are alive with colour, detail, multiple camera shots and variations.

This video was directed by Anders Sundstedt and produced by Sundstedt Animation, in collaboration with the artist Phyllis Sinclair. The idea for the video, with the woman and northern lights, was provided by Phyllis. We then took that idea and developed it into this animated scene. The woman in the animation is based on Phyllis, the singer and songwriter.

Looping Illustrations Music Videos

In particular, we used hand-drawn backgrounds and characters, combined with animated details such as wind and snow. With the character interacting with the fox in the video, looking at each other, it makes it more unique than a still image would do. We also made a few shots of the fox on it’s own, and with the northern lights, to create more variations and details.

2D character based animated loops

The animated loop music videos we make are made to promote an artist or song. There are many kinds of music videos. Filmed videos, animated videos, animated loop illustrations and animated lyric videos etc. We make many types of animated music videos. 2D character based animated loop is one kind of animated loop we can do for a song.

Specially designed for your song

2D animated loops are one option we can create for your song, where there is not a whole linear storyline with a storyboard and script. Instead, it’s a loop animated illustration or illustrations, specially designed for your song. Compelling, thought-provoking (otional) visuals. We love the collaboration with the artist, that reached out to us to make the animated video.

Shots and loops

In this animated music video project, we took the animated loop idea further, by making some additional shots and variations, while still being one scenery. The clip has a few different camera shots, close-ups, a fox running by, close-ups at different parts of the scene, and a variation in the background northern lights animation, plus a shooting start in the end. We also made some parts as animated lyric videos, and used camera pans to improve it further. A lot more work than one looping image, to make ir more like a full animated music video.

Complexity and options

Depending on your music video budget, we can make one looping animation / animated illustration, which cost less, or a more complex video like this one with the added camera shots and variations, that cost a bit more. Of course, there is also the option to make a whole storyline / linear story animated music video with a script, which is the most expensive of the three.


“They say, “a picture is worth a thousand words.” In the case of Sundstedt Animation, a picture is worth far more. What can be said of images so rich in clarity, and in colour, that one stays transfixed, absorbing their meaning through sensitively made expressions and interpretations? In my case, there was only one scene. However, that one scene was made so expressively that all who viewed commented on how, in its uncluttered elegance, it upheld and supported the song in a rich and meaningful way. Anders keeps the client’s wishes at the forefront, never wanting to deviate from the clients purpose and goal. A meticulous, and sensitive artist, his creations are alive with colour and fluidity. I will not hesitate to get Sundstedt Animation on board for my next animation project. Easy, friendly, professional, beautiful.”
