Animation Highlight: XIAN
Instagram friend @Sleepy_gallows sent me the link to this video on Instagram a few weeks ago. They expressed how much they loved this short. I thought it would be great to make it an animation highlight
After watching XIAN I felt it was worth sharing because I enjoyed the narrative storytelling. The visual treatment was well done. It’s a very graphic style and reminiscent of cut out paper at the same time.
