Jesse Collett: Boom Is Life

Jesse Collett's 2014 RCA graduation short 'Boom Is Life' amalgamates an inventive blend of 2D animated characters and real 3D environments. The deliberately limited colour palette, UV glow, consistent character design and tricks like projecting animated shadows into the 3D sets, have all helped form its cohesively strong and thoroughly enjoyable aesthetic.

'Boom Is Life' isn't all style over substance, the impressive animation is also paired with an innovative and cerebral narrative... It poetically explores the incomprehensible vastness of the universe, taking the viewer on an existential journey shattering the reality of their everyday mundanity.
