This little stop motion video was conceptualized and executed in two tiny studio apartments in Silverlake, Los Angeles, California. It took us two days to build the set, two full days of shooting, and hours of editing and scoring.  Not to mention how long it took to design and create the collection. After much time and effort, I am super excited and very proud to introduce the "Primordia" collection to the world- in all its cosmic, weirdo glory!
