Spring to Come: Animation by Dropbear Digital
A beautiful stop-motion music video for John Butler Trio's single "Spring to Come" using 330 hand-cut paper illustrations by Melbourne based illustrator Snip Green. The video took hundreds of hours to create and was animated on a traditional animation stand that consisted of three to four layers of glass so that the background, foreground and middle ground could be divided up and animated separately.
The story is about an Earth-bound spirit called Jack who is searching for his long lost wife called Spring. He wanders the landscape as it changes through the seasons and all around him the cycle of life continues. In the end he finds Spring and returns to the light.
