The School of Life asked me to direct this animation with Easy Animal Studio about the advantages of a long distance relationship. I decided to use a split screen to emphasis the difference in distance between the characters, with a giant chasm stopping them from being together. My favourite part is when the female character flashes a fisherman, which caused many shocked comments on YouTube protesting that “that’s not flirting!”.
