Kurt Vonnegut’s “Make Up Your Mind” - Transition Animations

Kurt Vonnegut's "Make Up Your Mind" Transition Animations from Seághan McKay on Vimeo.

To accompany the dark comedy in this world premiere of a newly discovered Kurt Vonnegut play, I pulled from the author’s many artworks and doodles found in his novels. Using these sources, I created art that was then printed, hand-cut, and animated in a stop-motion style. These animations were then incorporated into the production as interstitial episodes.

Recently a cinematographer friend of mine invited me to design projections for a music video he was filming for local band Cancer Killing Gemini. Check it out here.
