Afterparties, Visual Storytelling, and Keeping the NSFW Out of Work

leave a comment »

(While writing the following for work, I realized that a few moments in the accompanying video are NSFW in most workplaces, so I figured I’d post it here instead.)

I was just sharing with a colleague an example of a useful, entertaining brief animated video and thought I’d share it here, too.

This three-minute-long clip, in which musician and comedian Carrie Brownstein searches for a mythical good afterparty, has all the elements you want in a brief animation: a taut, compelling story (complete with surprises and reversals), images that reinforce and comment upon what’s being said (often with humor), and a design that fits well with the topic. It also features my favorite song from her White Flag project. Enjoy!
