Feeling Connected

‘Feeling Connected’ is a short animation responding to the words of Vivek Murthy in a podcast for RSA Events, discussing the need for human connection in a world of isolation. Animating the podcast provided a platform to explore hand drawn frames, texture, and a vibrant colour palette that celebrates the tactility of the process. By initially tracing the journey of a single character and their experience of isolation, the viewer is encouraged to consider what is possible when communities work together. Visual metaphors and the subtle addition of sound help bring the narrative to life.
