An animated trailer for Imogen Hermes Gowar's debut novel 'The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock'. Winner of the Penguin Random House Competition. This project was a collaboration with Holly Warburton, Reed Hasan-Wiles, Nuryia Ahmed-Ismail and Megan Wright.
Our concept was to introduce the characters and setting of Georgian London through one long panning shot. We wanted to translate the sense of mystery and intrigue we felt reading the book into the trailer. We did a lot of research on the period and setting, which really informed our character designs, backgrounds and colour scheme.
