Hello Summer Trailer

A charming mixed-media tale of family, sun & Summer holidays

Hello Summer is a teaser for what will be a mixed media short film telling the story of a family on their summer holiday. A combination of hand-drawn animation and a stop-motion animation of objects, the concept was born from Martin's childhood memories of family holidays.

'I often get bored, and to entertain myself I usually took a blank sheet of paper and put some object on it. Then taking a pencil and drawing something on the paper, which changed this object to something new, usually to something bigger and funnier.'

Martin's creative and colourful animation style imbues the atmosphere of sun into the visuals, not tied to any specific location or time, the film is purely a love letter to sun-soaked days.
