The general idea of the video came up pretty quickly, as we didn't have a lot of time to sit down and think about it. The song evokes the feeling of love, friendship and living in the better world, when love comes to our lives. So, we decided to show this through a magical garden full of plants, flowers and animals, where fantastic things could happen. For example, a neighbor, a man around 60, is flying on a plane made of a newspaper, while two main characters are running and jumping on the gigantic flowers. In the end all people, animals and insects are happily dancing together. We also wanted to keep the color palette joyful and bright. Frame by frame animation requires a lot of hard work, but we enjoyed it and feel happy about the result! Now we want to share the process and show some sketches and photos here.

PROCESS: The beginning
.
All started from a rough idea of the story, that we generated together at Bela’s place. The story transfers the positive emotions of living, loving and being together on the planet Earth. Two main characters live alone in their apartments and everything around is just nothing special - neighbors, street, dusty city... After they meet each other, their apartments and building they live in, transforms into a fantastic garden with plants, animals and other people. Birds are flying, neighbors are harvesting fruits and vegetables, plants are growing. Love makes us feel happier and to look on all things in a different angle.
