• Animated ants, wet cement, leaves blowing in the wind. These are many of the things we animated for the NFB project.
  • Motion graphics, graphic design and creative direction by Kevin Airgid

About the NFB creative process:
In her essay “My Hometown,” Miriam Toews talks about how the moral spine of the Mennonite town she grew up in has shifted, or faded; about how even the letters of her name, which she’d carved into the sidewalk as a child, are barely visible now. We ran with that idea and introduced animator Kevin Airgid to the joys of carving letters in wet cement.
