Emoji Animation

Just in case you didn't see this in our last newsletter or want to hire us to create an emoji animation for you – here is what we created as Season's Greetings a few months ago. Temporarily slightly obsessed with emoji we made this animation creating over 1000 video stills. This animation is the continuation of a series of experimental ASCII animations by FL@33.
