This animated short film is about the popular spirit Gin and its interesting and varied history. The style harks back to the early days of jazz music and cocktails, in its punchy music and strong, moody palette. The story covers Gin’s popularity throughout the decades and particularly its inclusion in cocktails and the cocktail era of the early 1950s. Simple, graphic shapes and great palettes of rich colours were used to lend the retrospective feel that sums up Gin’s character. Although it is an entirely digital animation, the line quality and paper texture convey a traditional hand drawn touch.
