Animation Inspiration - Castle On The Hill

Ed Sheeran released two new songs this week and coupled them with lyric videos. This video for Castle On The Hill really captured my imagination. The song is a love letter to teenage years, growing up and the feeling of going back to those brilliant memories. It makes me feel nostalgic for the times when we drank Malibu and Coke out of plastic cups and danced while looking shyly at boys across the dancefloor.

I love the paint strokes that gallop along with the melody and the hand lettered words popping up. Makes me want to learn to animate.

Unfortunately I can't find a credit for who did the animation, if anyone knows please Tweet me at @and_sowebegin!
