Sam Smith – The Lighthouse Keeper


A behind the scenes look at the making of Sam Smith’s “The lighthouse keeper”. Under the direction of Sam Smith, we follow a tale of a Fisherman returning home to their partner for Christmas. A classic, familiar narrative told though a contemporary lens. With this in mind, we worked on developing an animation sequence that resembles a story book. Detailed illustrations and vignettes on the life of the Fisherman and the Lighthouse Keeper tells Sam Smith’s story. A beautiful and heartfelt sentiment to a very celebrated time of the year.
