I was invited by Joshua Safran (Gossip Girl, Smash, Quantico) to create Nellie’s artistic world in the Netflix series Soundtrack, a musical drama which explored the love stories connecting a diverse group of people in Los Angeles.
The inspiration behind this sequence was the "Take On Me" by A-Ha music video, where we are thrown into the world of the comic. This project's main challenge was to ensure that the footage and animated pieces worked together in unison to create a dynamic and engaging sequence.
