London-based animator James Curran of SlimJim Studios spent the month of July in Los Angeles with the vow to make new animation each day representing something from his day’s activities.
On the first day of his 30-day project, we see the long legged hiker climb a steep hill with a passing glimpse of the Hollywood sign. As project progresses, we see him battle traffic, go to the beach, skateboard at an art opening, and hang out with superheros.
His #LAGifathon project is a sequel to his month-long NYC Gifathon that he did last year. “I really want to keep doing more work that’s spontaneous,” said the animator in an interview. “The main thing I want to avoid is spending months obsessing over projects, when I just want be creating and sharing as much as possible.”
