A Verdant Ecosystem Emerges from a Barren Landscape in the Animated Music Video for Moomin’s ‘For Willow’

December 15, 2022

In a psychedelic, otherworldly vista, colorful flora and fauna interact in a seamless series of events in the music video for Moomin’s “For Willow.” Illustrators and animators Alex Gamsu Jenkins and Joe Taylor collaborated on the three-minute short, which opens on a forlorn, stony figure standing in a barren landscape, who begins to metamorphose with signs of vitality and greenery. Incorporating speckles onto each frame to suggest the graininess of analog film, each scene unfolds continuously from the last as the environment gradually becomes lush and teems with life.
