Hello! Time for an update!
I have some stills and art to share and they look great. Just to recap, a round of animators were sent audio files to listen to and interpret. These short mp3s consisted of interview subjects telling stories and sharing insights and the animators have the freedom to interpret these stories, in some cases literally, in others more conceptually. Here are a few pieces of art to give you a sense of their unique styles, many including caricatures of the individual storytellers. Good stuff!
(Note: I'm pretty sure those guys will have eyes eventually.)
