All artwork including characters was designed by Anders Sundstedt as paper cutout style pieces, including all characters and animals for the video. We developed our own style for the video that has a paper cutout look, while we illustrated all artwork digitally instead of using actual paper cutout pieces.

From the start, Anders Sundstedt wanted to make a very detailed, playful and bright animated music video with high-quality backgrounds, characters and animations, using his own personal style.

Based on the script and notes provided, we went ahead and developed the look and the storyboard for the shots of the animated music video.

“I’m excited because “The Lark and the Loon – The Old Red Rooster” has great reviews from the judges and is now in the 2nd round of consideration! I just loved your folksy paper cut out animation. It’s very original and it stands out as something unique among the other submissions I have seen. I could tell that it was put together well and had a special personal touch.”
