Another Project produced for

This one for a French Canadian artist that I know personally!


I met Christien Paul at a Vipassana Retreat in Barrie, Ontario. It was a very curious because at the retreat you are barred from talking or making eye contact with anyone for the 10 day duration. But I found that you still connect with people on an unconscious level none the less. Without intending to we always ended up sitting next to each other at meal and lecture times (you’re free to sit wherever). When silence was broken at the end of the retreat we were both excited to introduce ourselves, who the hell are you? Why are you so familiar? He ended up being a very relatable chap (brother from another mother), Martial Artist, fellow entrepreneur and audio/visual artist.

Years later I got in touch about the animation work I was doing, and it turns out that he was pursuing a venture of his own, he later contacting me about doing an animated music video about the life of a street cat. Unfortunately we failed to get the grant for it, so he compromised on a lyric video instead. But hopefully one day we can make it happen! 

Be sure to check out all of Christien Paul’s amazing music and videos at his official website:

Behind the Scenes:

This was a fun one to make, I don’t speak or understand French but luckily I am blessed with an amazing girlfriend who happens to be francophone, as well as a very talented artist. She was kind enough to translate and storyboard a bunch of ideas for what we could do. She also came up with the dandelion concept which ended up as the cover for the single and the intro. She’s doesn’t have a site of her own yet, but I’ll be sure to make a post about it when it happens so you can check out her incredible work. 

Another big help was Ben Marriot’s After Effects tutorial for achieving a Hand Drawn Style. I’ve been using it in every project since, just amazing! 

As well as some assets and fonts from Envato Elements.

I think my favorite part of the video has to be the ukulele at 2:34, really happy with how it turned out. 

Any comments or questions, let me know and I’ll be glad to expand on this post.
