Group Hug: Christmas Card

A friend of mine, Grant Harold, sent me a song he wrote for Chrismas this year, and I liked its simple message. Together with another friend Nathan Deceasar, the three of us form the informal collaborative; "Group Hug". We created this animation to reflect the story of the song, inspired by paper craft, strata cut, and origami set in a snowy wonderland.
