Get Up, Pierrot (7min, 2018)

Hand inked frame by frame animation.

Get Up, Pierrot is an existential pastry made by folding layers of identity upon itself with equal parts tears and smiles.

The archetypal, sad clown, pining for true happiness, but finding only failure, and rejection in place of success.
Pierrot is, or could be, anyone. We're all Pierrot sometimes.

Get Up, Pierrot is a crowd sourced, choose your own adventure episodic animation now in its second season. Each episode is released on Instagram.
