    Over the past two years, we wrote, directed, produced, illustrated, animated, sound designed, and scored our short film, Death Loves Life. Here, we hope to give you a behind-the-scenes look into what it takes to create an animated film — from scripting to scoring. Screen Shot 2014-11-17 at 6.48.43 PMA few years ago, Coat of Arms’ Producers Clara Lehmann and Jonathan Lacocque read Life of Pi and were struck by one particular quote in the book: “Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud…” ― Yann Martel, Life of Pi Read Less
    Published:
Young and beautiful, Life is enthralled with the world around her. Death is enamored by Life's innocence and vivacity, but his attempts to connect with her are fleeting. Despite Death’s awkward and destructive path, Life recovers from each loss with graceful fortitude. In Death’s gloom, a passionate love for Life blossoms.
 
This very short film was conceived by Clara Lehmann & Jonathan Lacocque, and completed nights and weekends from 2014 to 2015. It's our first short narrative and was an experiment to see whether we could pull it off, and to begin the process of working on more narrative projects in the future.  We hope you enjoy!
