The Kid Should See This

Grant Olney‘s Not From Body

This beautiful paper cut-out animated video for Grant Olney‘s Not From Body was directed by Hlín Davíðsdóttir. It follows an owl being ostracized by other animals in the forest and how the owl moves beyond that experience. From NPR

“My main focus was to tell the story of a character that, through a series of both sad and comical moments, finds his own path in life,” Davíðsdóttir writes. “I felt the song was about trying not to worry about things that are out of our control and I wanted that feeling to come across in the video.”

On a side note: Grant is a mathematician with a PhD in high-dimensional geometry.
